When flooding devastated Southeastern Kentucky on July 28, Kingsport resident and McRoberts, Kentucky, native Catherine Tucker decided she had to help the people in her small community.

The Letcher County native asked permission from her pastor at First Presbyterian Church to use the Fellowship Center to accept donations for flood victims on Aug. 8. Notice of the collection drive was made to other churches on Church Circle, as well to several other churches in Kingsport and to three groups in which Catherine is involved.
