Matthew 25: Ministries responded to severe flooding that occurred across parts of Kentucky in July. Over four inches of rain fell across Nicholas County causing major flash flooding throughout the county capital of Carlisle and along the Brushy Fork Creek and led to at least one fatality. Around 80 homes and 30 businesses were destroyed by flooding. The flooding also caused multiple road closures and the city’s sewer system non-operational.

On Saturday, August 7, in partnership with Procter & Gamble and Cintas, our Disaster Response Team deployed with our customized panel trucks loaded with relief supplies. The team distributed approximately 150 personal care kits, 900 rolls of paper products, 600 detergent pods, 2,900 bottles of water, and more to a local distribution center and throughout areas impacted by the flooding. We are working with partners in the area to evaluate ongoing needs. This is Matthew 25’s second deployment in 2021 in response to severe flooding in Kentucky.
