Lexington business collects supplies for flood victims in West Virginia

Employees at AmericarePlus have been coordinating efforts to gather relief supplies for the flood victims in West Virginia.

They loaded a bus with supplies Thursday afternoon at the Mayflower, a care facility they run in Lexington.

Employees brought the supplies to West Virginia themselves Friday morning.

A number of groups, churches and individuals contributed the items and filled several vehicles.

They'll be collecting more relief supplies next week at AmeriCare Plus facilities all across the area for a second trip.
