Flooded roads lead to large donation to local charity
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – A Lexington charity is getting a big donation in the wake of Hurricane Florence.
A semi-truck carrying food donations from Lundy’s made it to the North Carolina border but was turned away because of flooded roads.
Because the food was perishable and would likely spoil waiting to make it to its destination in North Carolina, the company decided to bring it to Lexington and donate it to the Catholic Action Center.
“We’re just thrilled this is going to be put to use,” says Alissa Tibe with the Emergency Disaster Services, the company transporting the donations. “Something good has come out of a tragedy.”
The Catholic Action Center received the donation, that included produce, eggs and milk, on Monday afternoon.
