A helping hand for storm victims

The road to recovery is a long one for those who were affected by the deadly tornadoes that tore through western Kentucky on December 11.  The philanthropic arm of Kentucky Oaks Mall is contributing to that effort.  The Cafaro Foundation has donated $10,000 to the American Red Cross to assist with disaster relief.  Additional donations were contributed to the Red Cross through a portal on the mall’s website.

For more information on ways to assist recovery efforts, you can find your local chapter’s contact information by searching your zip code at
