On July 27th, heavy rain began to fall over eastern Kentucky, causing the Kentucky river to reach record highs and flood numerous communities. The death toll has risen to at least 39 lives, with thousands more left without proper shelter or access to food and water. Kentucky State Governor Andy Beshear and President Joe Biden declared a Statewide Emergency and Major Disaster, respectively.
Good360 is working with Kentucky Emergency Management and Kentucky Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) to identify locally verified product needs as the disaster recovery phases progress. Utilizing our partnerships on the ground, we have recognized that the rebuilding needs will stretch to over 4,000 homes and families in the eastern KY area. We will be watching carefully as the needs continue to transition to muck and gut and infrastructure rehabilitation product.
As part of Good360’s commitment to stemming the flow of unneeded, unsolicited product donations, we will continue to work with our partners on the ground to provide donations that fill confirmed needs within communities and make them available as they are ready to receive them.
If you would like to help those impacted, please donate by using the button below. We can amplify every dollar contribution by 20x. That means that a $10 donation translates to at least $200 in needed goods.

We’ll be there in the early days with personal care items, supplies for shelters, and cleaning/mucking out products and we’ll be there long after the media spotlight has dimmed months and years later with furniture, mattresses, home goods and other necessities to help impacted communities through the recovery journey.
Our mission is to provide critically needed goods throughout all stages of a disaster. This means we’ll continue to provide support long after media interest fades.
