On December 15, they received a large donation amounting to tens of thousands of pairs of socks.
“It is something that you cannot understand. You see and hear about destruction. Your heart bleeds for the people and you want to do something,” said Kelly Baugh, CEO of For Bare Feet.
For Baugh, it was something loading a wagon loaded with 41,000 pairs of socks.
“The immediate biggest mode of transportation is my personal horse-drawn carriage. So the largest amount that will fit is 41,000. If they need 41,000 more, we’ll bring them,” Baugh said.
While Baugh’s company is located in Indiana, she and her family live here Kentucky. Running her own workshop, the news about the Mayfield candle factory was particularly close to home.
“I mean when you think about your family, they are family. Some are third generation. You want to do something and help them. Your heart is for them. So we started thinking about what we could do to help,” Baugh said.
Baugh knew the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office was collecting toys and supplies for the relief fund, so they started there.
A large donation, which doesn’t surprise Sheriff Kathy Witt in the slightest.
“We don’t wait for a crisis to happen to tell us what to do. Witt said. “We know our neighbors, we know our colleagues, we know our neighbors. So when something happens to a friend in Kentuckian, it happens to all of us and we get together. “
