FRANKFORT, Ky. (September 28, 2017) – The Kentucky House of Representatives, led by Speaker of the House Jeff Hoover, has organized a disaster relief fund to aid victims of the recent hurricanes, which have devastated parts of Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and more.   More than $4,700 has been raised and all proceeds will go to the American Red Cross.


“Millions of people have been adversely affected by these catastrophic storms,” said Speaker Jeff Hoover. “Victims have lost loved ones, homes, and personal belongings. Establishing a fund to help people rebuild their lives is one small way we can give back to those who are suffering due to these unprecedented natural disasters.”


In a recent letter, Speaker Hoover called on all House members, Republican and Democrat, to participate in the effort. Funds donated by House members will go toward providing disaster victims with food, shelter, supplies, and health services, as well as emotional support.
