Adena Health & Kenworth Among Area Locations For Donating to Kentucky Flood Relief

Article Presented By Rathkamp Financial

(Chillicothe) – More locations in Ross County are stepping up in their effort to assist Kentucky flood relief victims.

Adena Health System, in partnership with Kenworth and with the assistance of Clary Trucking Inc. and Danny Herman Trucking, is taking its everyday commitment to community beyond Ohio’s borders to help affected Kentucky families begin the long road back to normal.

From 8am-4pm Monday, August 8, through Thursday, August 11, Adena caregivers and members of the community will have the opportunity to impact countless lives by bringing donations of badly needed items to the PACCAR Medical Education Center, 446 Hospital Road on the Adena Regional Medical Center campus in Chillicothe.

The donation site will be clearly marked outside the building to make dropping off items easy and quick.

Kenworth Truck Company will host donation sites on the same dates between 6am-8am and 2pm-7pm.

Items needed include cleaning supplies, paper towels, bottled water, large plastic totes, shovels, push brooms, toilet paper, to-go food containers, non-perishable food items and industrial trash bags. At this time, clothing donations are not being sought.

Monetary donations, however, are also being accepted online by visiting www.adena.org/kentucky-flood-relief.

“At Adena, we feel called to serve our communities,” said President and CEO Jeff Graham. “There are times and circumstances, however, where that commitment must be expanded to embrace those in need outside of our usual service area. This is one of those times. 

“As a Health System that provides care for several rural communities, we understand the extreme challenges the residents of eastern Kentucky now face. We also have seen the generosity and caring spirit of the residents of southern and south central Ohio firsthand and know that, together, we can have a tremendous impact in bringing some relief to those suffering from this tragedy.”
