STANARDSVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - A Greene County man is asking for help from the community in his quest to deliver aid to communities in Kentucky recovering from the devastating tornadoes.

Stacy Roach was able to get a trailer and will drive it to Kentucky next week, once it’s filled with boxes of supplies.

“We just [saw] it on the news and decided we wanted to help,” Roach said. “The only way I knew how was to try and get a trailer together and try to fill it.”

Right now, the trailer is parked at the Greene County Sheriff’s Office, where you can bring donations between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. until the trailer departs on either December 22 or 23. You can also bring items to Riverside North Restaurant.
