LYNCHBURG, Va. (WDBJ) - A local nonprofit is collecting supplies to take to Kentucky for those in need after deadly flooding there.

Gleaning for the World is accepting donations at Sam’s Club on Ward’s Road in Lynchburg from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday.

“Five food pantries have been completely devastated. They were in need to begin with in Eastern Kentucky and then the devastation with the flooding and the deaths. They just really need the help,” said Michael Justice, director of donors for Gleaning for the World.

The truck will leave for Kentucky at the beginning of next week.

Monetary donations can also be given anytime on Gleaning for the World’s website.
