Flood relief trip brings meals to Jackson

On Saturday, August 27, 2022, Randy Young's Happy Hawg BBQ and lots of volunteers from Columbia and Russell Springs travelled about 140 miles east to Jackson, Kentucky, which had been hit by catastrophic flooding in late July.

The group brought BBQ and fixings to the First Church of God in Jackson, where they fed close to 2,000 people. Randy also presented $1,400 in donations to the two Jackson churches that helped host and distribute food.

Randy says "Everything went well, and everyone was very thankful for what we did. I'd like to thank some very important people that helped deliver the food and worked, Adam Roy for helping me smoke the butts, Justin and Pam Burris, Ronnie and Tamra Blackwell, Aleia, Kerry and Terrie Radford, Chris Wilson, Simon Wilson, Tanner Foster, Tiffany Holt, Diane Young, Ted Edmonds, Clara Gabbard, also the young girls from Jackson that helped and even hand delivered the food to parts of the county."

Plans are already underway for a return trip at Thanksgiving.
