April 29, 2011

Because of all of the disasters hitting us , we have decided to help Alabama. They were the worst hit, since a tornado in 1934. Dr. Ken Mask from Louisiana is best friends with Wheaton Marcella's a jazz musician from New Orleans, they are helping raise money for donations to Kentucky-Tennessee Disaster Group Inc. for our ability to deliver disaster supplies to the most needed areas. What ever you donate, 100 percent will go directly to that site. No one gets paid to do what we do, we just volunteer, we will supply you with video, pictures, and receipts of what we have done to help others. Please donate, Jim Paul

Subject: Helping the Tornado survivers---It is a God thing....

When Katrina happened, my new very great friend Jim Paul arrived in Baton Rouge from Kentucky...in the time he spent helping, he learned a great deal about assisting folk after massive trauma. He truly knows how to help.

I called him today with the thought that I would do a clothing drive after I heard on NPR that the mayor of Birmingham says that they need anything. Jim Paul provided me with the kind of straight ahead advice that is beautiful; he described various contacts on the ground who can get items to the people. He has access to numerous categories of disaster relief warehouses and he is affiliate with Christian Appalachian Project (CAP) as well as Feed the Children.

This is it:he has a non-profit 501C3 organization that is plugged into the folk there who provide substantial help..
We agreed that the best way for me and us to help right now is to have YOU donate whatever you can to his group. Donate money to
have him secure trucks and drivers. Period.

Contact me to get additional information and call him. Please play this forward.

2010 FLOODING -

Monday, May 10, 2010
On May 2 and 3, 2010 torrential rains fell in the Nashville, TN area and resulted in record flooding. Rain totals in some areas were greater than 17 inches and the Cumberland River crested at nearly 52 feet, a level not seen since 1937, before the Army Core of Engineers and the Tennessee Valley Authority established flood control measures in the area.
I received the above information from a Presbyterian Disaster Relief news letter this weekend. We are in the process of putting together a load of supplies that have already been donated and we will deliver them to Nashville next week. We are hoping to get more donated items such as cleaning supplies, canned food, personal hygiene items, etc. We are looking for local organizations from Kentucky and Tennessee to contact us if they would like to help. We have information as to were volunteers can be trained and contacts to the organizations needing help.
Please call 606-524-1988

2010 HAITI Earthquake -

KEN-TENN Relief Team
of Kentucky and Tennessee
Welcome to all that view this site

It is apparent to the world that on January 12, Haiti was struck by a devastating earthquake. There are over 50,000 known dead and thousands of injured. Here in Kentucky we are partnering with the Capital City Christian Church from Frankfort, Ky. to help those affected by this disaster.

The church has been doing mission work in Haiti for a long time and they had thirteen missionaries stranded in Haiti after the quake. Today I spoke with Doug Eads from the church and he told me about three missions they were working with, and in these early stages of the disaster we have chosen to help them. With such a large disaster it is hard to decide what you can do to help, a local parent volunteer and Whitley North Elementary has given us some direction.

We are challenging all of the local schools, churches, and businesses to see who can raise the most supplies to help those children affected by this disaster. We are asking for items that will help a child who is grieving, such as blankets, small toys, hard candy, pacifiers, tipsy cups, etc. Items that can be shipped at minimal cost. If you would like to help please contact Jim Paul at 606 524 1988.

======================

1/18/10
Just off the phone with Jim -
After recieving a number of calls from community and friends, Jim Paul is ready to be available. His community schools will be collecting supplies from their eager to help students and delivering them to Kenn-Tenn for palletizing and warehouse storage, ready for shipment.

Ken-Tenn taking supplies to flood victims

By Ivy Brashear / Staff Writer

Ken-Tenn Relief Team, a local non-profit organization, is partnering with Penske Truck Rental in London to bring food, water and supplies to recent flood victims in Floyd and Breathitt Counties.

Last week, the organization delivered two truckloads of water and one truckload of food and supplies to hard-hit communities where flooding occurred. This week they will be delivering more to the Floyd County communities, Garrett and Waylon, and to Jackson in Breathitt County, where the fire department will help the National Guard distribute supplies to families who are in most need.

“We look for those who, for whatever reason, can’t get out and get food and supplies themselves,” Jim Paul, the director of Ken-Tenn, said. “We’re trying to help those who can’t help themselves.”

Ken-Tenn looking for donations to help Ky. flash-flood victims

Published: May 13, 2009 08:19 am
Times-Tribune Staff Report

Ken-Tenn is en route to Floyd County Kentucky to help flash-flood victims clean up after the latest storm — but Ken-Tenn is asking for some help from Tri-Countians.

Jim Paul, director of Ken-Tenn, the Williamsburg relief organization, said the group will be bringing supplies to eastern Kentucky all week. Paul said Ken-Tenn greatly needs donations of Clorox and other disinfectants to help people de-mud and de-mold their flooded homes.

“I’ve got reports from a minister in Garrett that he knows of at least 200 people who have lost or had their homes nearly destroyed,” Paul said.

Paul said donations can be dropped off from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Oak Grove Elementary School, or at the Ellison Funeral Home in Williamsburg at anytime.

Those interested in joining the cleanup effort can also contact Paul on his cell phone at (606) 524-1988.

-----------------------------------

...Books will start with local distribution, and will then be given out to organizations across the 13 states in Appalachia.
