Eastern Kentucky Flood Response

Responding to Kentucky Flooding: United Way of Central Kentucky and You


Eastern Kentucky communities are now facing an unprecedented flood disaster.  

Kentucky's United Way network is working with emergency management, disaster partners and local communities to support services for families impacted by recent disasters impacting our state, including the July 2022 Eastern Kentucky Flood, and the December 2021/January 2022 Western Kentucky Tornados.

At this time, monetary donations are needed to support the needs of impacted residents and their communities.

100% of donated funds received by UWKY will go directly to support recovery efforts. Please consider rounding up your gift to cover the cost of credit card processing fees when donating.

Donations to the United Way of Kentucky Disaster Fund may be tax deductible even if you don't itemize your taxes.  Talk to your tax advisor for more information.

Thank you for joining us in standing united with Kentucky families in need. Now more than ever, please give generously! LIVE UNITED.

If you prefer to make a gift by check, please send it to United Way of Kentucky, P.O. Box 4653, Louisville, KY 40204 - with the memo line "Kentucky Disaster Recovery", and specify the event (flood, tornado).  

Due to the widespread nature of these events, we are not allowing county-specific designations at this time.  If you have questions about your gift, please contact Roberta Steutermann at roberta.steutermann@uwky.org, or to learn more about United Way's work in your community, please visit http://www.uwky.org.

NOTE: Neither UWKY nor any of our member United Ways are currently accepting donations of physical goods.  If you are looking to send cleaning supplies, etc, we recommend directing them to the Christian Appalachian Project at the following link: https://www.christianapp.org/



Thank you for your generosity!
