FLOODING IN KENTUCKY JULY 2022
Update on the Kentucky Flood Relief.
We are currently working with a clinic in Fleming-Neon that was completely flooded as well as that entire area. We will be delivering medical supplies for the clinic as well as basic needs supplies for this community this week.
**If you have any resources for getting medical supplies and equipment to this area please let us know.
Below are some pictures of the clinic we’re working with in Fleming-Neon, KY. This is before they flooded again this morning. This is the only clinic in this area. Absolutely everything has been flooded here including the post office so we can’t have anything shipped in yet.
The death toll from these floods is up to 35 with hundreds still missing.
The churches we are in contact with all across the flooded areas are telling us that so many roads and bridges are out that many of the families that need help on their homes can’t be reached. We will continue to work on this and update on volunteer opportunities as soon as we have any new info.
**Please continue to keep these families in your prayers.

We have a new registration system. We are now using CERVIS to manage our volunteer database.
You will need to create a profile before you will be able to register to volunteer with us. To create your profile please click on the “volunteer sign-up” button and you will see the new sign-in form. Once on that page you will need to click on the "sign in to manage your profile" button located near the bottom of the box. You will then be prompted to enter your email address and your first name in the appropriate places. The system will check to see if you already have a profile. If you do not already have a profile you will be prompted to create your profile. You only have to do this one time, however, we do have it set up that you will need to verify the information on occasion. Once you have created your profile you will simply need to sign-in and register for an opportunity when you wish to volunteer with us. Please note that creating a profile DOES NOT REGISTER YOU for an opportunity to volunteer with us. You will need to sign-up for each opportunity as they come along.
Ongoing work at the DRT Warehouse
When DRT is not actively working at a disaster site there is work to be done at the DRT Warehouse in Tipp City, OH. Check the "Volunteer Signup" page to see if we are currently taking applications for work at the Warehouse. If "DRT Warehouse" is not shown in the drop-down box it means we are NOT currently accepting volunteers at the warehouse.
If "DRT Warehouse" is shown on the drop-down, please select DRT Warehouse for your work location. Please make sure each person in your group registers so we know how many volunteers we will have.
If you are not able to come and help physically, please pray about helping us financially.
