LEXINGTON, Ky. — Indiana owner-operator Daniel Koors, along with a group of other truckers, is set up at the Lexington Walmart with a dry van trailer taking donations for those affected by the weekend tornadoes, which destroyed many communities, including Mayfield, Kentucky.

Koors said that the outpouring of support has been overwhelming.

He said he and others will deliver the truck, along with cash donations, to the hardest-hit areas in Kentucky.

To those who wish to give a monetary donation, the group accepts funds through Venmo (@tornadoreleif), CashApp ($brownsfan2022) or Zelle ([email protected]).

Additionally, anyone who wants to buy items, such as water, coats, shoes, clothing, blankets, baby wipes, diapers, feminine products, underwear, socks, deodorant and non-perishable foods, on the Walmart website can set the pickup person as James Toller at the Lexington Walmart located at the above address.

Koors said that cash will most likely go toward helping those affected by the storms pay for hotel rooms.
