Aid Delivered to Madisonville Kentucky

Indiana Branch (first photo on top) Manager Gene Ernst, wife Vivian with volunteers Jerry Maley, wife Carol, and 2 grandkids (daughter not pictured) delivered 2 -18’ trucks filled with furniture and household goods to Madisonville, KY for tornado relief aid. The church housing the items is call The House of I AM and Charles and Susan Reynolds (second picture with other church volunteers and Gene Ernst far right) helped to unload the goods. Charles had contacted Gene to let him know they could receive furniture for the many families that were ready to move back into their reconstructed homes after living in hotels or with friends since mid-December. As they were getting to the end of the second trailer, Charles made the comment “Good thing we are running our of items because our church is about full.” They were wonderful people to work with and the small crew helping to unload was fantastic! Truly a blessing to be able to help the families devasted by the tornadoes and a huge ‘Thank You’ to all the Indiana Branch donors and volunteers that helped!
