Kentucky FSA employee's home, property damaged by flooding

A member of the Kentucky FSA family was impacted by the devastating damage of recent Eastern Kentucky floods.


Kendra Moore, temporary intermittent PT in the Jackson Service Center, waded thru waist-deep water with her children to evacuate their home. Her home and personal property sustained considerable damage.


For those who would like to assist Kendra's family, she has permitted KASCOE to share her family's PayPal account so that monetary assistance can be sent directly to them:

How Can You Help?


So many individuals, businesses, and more here in Kentucky and across the nation are looking for ways to help those impacted by the devastating flooding in eastern Kentucky that has claimed many lives.


Kentucky Sports Radio (KSR) and the Kentucky Chamber Foundation are partnering to build a relief fund for our fellow Kentuckians to ensure they are able to rebuild.


With the money raised in this fund, our two groups will be working with local communities, local chambers, as well as our state and local elected officials to ensure the needs of these areas are met in the wake of tragedy.


The Kentucky Chamber Foundation, Inc., is a Section 501(c)(3) public charity and donations to it are generally eligible for tax deduction in the United States.


KSR and the Kentucky Chamber are committed to helping rebuild our communities and we appreciate your help and the overwhelming compassion and generosity of so many.

Help Isom IGA Recover after Historic Flooding

"It’s a scene of unimaginable disaster. This proud rural community of 1,365 people in Letcher County saw homes destroyed, local businesses filled with mud and debris, and the only grocery store for miles around, Isom IGA, was left devastated after being submerged under six feet of muddy water. The people of Isom lost not only their homes, belongings, and livelihoods, but also their access to fresh food and water."
