Tuesday Dec. 21, St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office arrived at the Logan County Extension Ag Arena with not one, but two, semi-trailer trucks loaded with supplies for the tornado victims here in Logan County. Once the trucks arrived, volunteers all joined together to unload and separate the supplies while cars lined up outside the arena.

The supplies received ranged from hygiene products, bottled water, clothing, kids’ toys, school supplies, cleaning items, heaters, and gift cards. The items were lined up and down the arena in separated categories, and the tornado victims drove through the arena as volunteers loaded supplies into their vehicles. By the end of the night, over 50 families came through the line.

St. Lucie County Fla., we will never be able to say thank you enough for the kindness you all displayed. Logan County is overwhelmed by the support you all have given. In a recent news article published by My Treasure Coast Now, a Florida news source, one of the sheriffs stated, “USA stands for United States of America. It doesn’t say ‘Your State of America’ or ‘My State of America.’ And what a statement that is; the way the community and the country as a whole has come together in support of Kentucky is truly astounding.

Thank you to the Logan County Cooperative Extension Service for their hospitality, to the Russellville Police Department and the Logan County Sheriff's Office, to the Ministerial Association, to Life Choice Pregnancy Care Center, to Logan County FRYSC, and to all volunteers who helped! A very big thank you to community members that came through the line and accepted the donations, we are praying for our those affected by the devastating storms.

Most of al,l thank you to our new friends of St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office.
