Nonprofit Asks for Donations for Hurricane Victims
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - A local nonprofit is asking for the public to donate supplies to support the victims of Hurricane Michael.

Healing Projects will be collecting donations from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday at its headquarters at 1200 Jefferson St. in Paducah. The side glass foyer is open for 24-hour drop-offs. To arrange for larger donations, call 270-556-4045.

Items needed include bottled water, new underwear in the package, feminine products, adult briefs, diapers, paper towels and toilet paper.

You can assemble a 'Relief Bucket', which is a 5-gallon bucket with a resealable lid, filled with liquid laundry detergent, bleach, dish soap, liquid concentrate household cleaner, heavy-duty cleaning gloves, dust masks, insect repellent and a roll of heavy trash bags.

You can also assemble 'Kid Fun Bags', filled with stickers, coloring books, individually wrapped candy and small toys. Or you can put together 'Compassion Bags', which are gallon slider ziplock bags filled with travel size toiletries and snacks.
