Around 9 a.m. Tuesday morning, the final donations were collected from the L-Bar building on Regency Road.
The two companies have been collecting clothing, food and hygiene products from the public since Monday.
“I am an animal lover. So I think about all the animals that were left out there when their homes fell apart,” said Kathy Martin, the donor. “So I hope that more people will donate pet food and blankets and things for the survivors.”
Another truck from Wildcat Moving is coming to collect more until 5pm. Right now, cleaning products, canvas and batteries are the most essential.
The Lexington Bluegrass Association of Realtors is also giving away $20,000 to help displaced residents.
LBAR is looking to use that money.
Additionally, the National Association of Realtors and the Broker Relief Fund will provide financial assistance to Kentucky homeowners over the next few days. Those funds will be in the form of direct funding for rent, security deposit or mortgage payments.
“I can tell you when we had floods in Carlisle, we gave those families $1,500 in funding to provide them with a stipend,” said Justin Landon, Lexington Bluegrass Realtors. Quick cash on the front end,” said Justin Landon, Lexington Bluegrass Brokers Association. “None of our programs are designed to make people whole, but try to help people in the short term.
The National Association of Realtors has a multi-million dollar bailout fund account.
