KENTUCKY – On Wednesday a Ross county group will be driving to Kentucky to drop off several box trucks of supplies to aid the victims of the tornado that ravaged those areas.

Degarmo says this isn’t the first time he’s done something like this, during Hurricane Katrina, he was living in Canada and felt the need to go and do something. Degarmo told Sciotopost that what started out as a van full of water ended up being a convoy of five 26 foot long box trucks and 70,000 dollars that went to aid the location.
That’s DeGarmos plan now, to get as much packed into several box trucks, and bring along anyone else who wants to come help and aid the victims of this storm. DeGarmo said that he’s contacted a trustworthy church group in one of the areas that were hit hard over the weekend and they will help disperse the goods to where it will help the most.
