Local business, B & K Live, helping flood victims
By Vicky Pike
Thinking about ways to help victims of the flooding in eastern Kentucky, partners of a local business offered a way to help. Last night B&K Live Resale held an online auction where bidders were given the option to donate items purchased and have it delivered by someone everyone knows.
Sandy Ford, an Adair County resident, who has family in Eastern Kentucky affected by the flood, was the inspiration leading for this event and will deliver the gifts. Anything Sandy's family can't use will be donated to others in need around them. Items donated included diapers, wipes, and air mattresses, to mention a few.
In the attached picture is the pile donated in just a couple hours on a spur of the moment idea by Kay Turner, Adair County bus coordinator, and Betty White, retired from Pizza Hut, the partners in B & K.
We all love the auctions but it proved the love we have for our neighbors who are having such a rough time in Eastern Kentucky. This is written to give a little recognition for doing such a thoughtful thing.
Betty and Kay's business, B & K Live, is a local auction held on Facebook once a week, usually on Saturday nights. Zippy is one of their devoted fans.
