Bring donations to Bowling Green

Cool Story - Bring donations to Bowling Green

Mother and son from Wisconsin bring donations to Bowling Green

They are receiving donations from all over the world as folks struggle to recuperate from the deadly tornadoes that struck western Kentucky.

Truckloads of goods arrived on Monday afternoon from Antigo, Wisconsin, a small town located nearly 700 miles distant.

Items were contributed by several churches, including the Antigo Community Church, Mt. Olive in Wausau, Wisconsin, and the Hope United Church of Christ in Fremont, Wisconsin.

Everything was placed into a trailer, a large U-Haul, and a 26-foot semi. The truck driver gave freely of his own time and gasoline to accomplish the trip.

Terry and Kyle Robertson, mother and son, were in charge of delivering all of the supplies to Bowling Green.

In all honesty, it means nothing to me since I enjoy doing things like this, said Kyle Robertson. Sincerely, I felt compelled to assist when I observed the damage that Saturday morning when I got up.

They have already made cross-country trips to assist with relief efforts after disasters. Terry Robertson remarked, "We did that with hurricane Ida a few months ago.

The Bowling Green Good Deeds Club will receive the donations that were delivered there.

Emorie Osborne said, "We simply perform nice deeds with no expectation of compensation." The Good Deeds Club, which 14-year-old Osborne founded while she was in kindergarten, is now a recognized non-profit.

Because there was no club for the younger children, my two older sisters and I felt excluded, according to Osborne. "My two older sisters had a group called the handicraft club," she continued. The Good Deeds Club was thus established.

It began with modest acts of compassion, such as picking up rubbish but has expanded into much more.

The majority of our hungry friends don't have access to food due to the weather, so Good Deeds typically distributes to roughly 50 individuals twice a week throughout the winter, according to Osborne.

They also support veterans participating in the American Legion VA program by furnishing their houses. They realized they had to act when the tornadoes hit Bowling Green.

Osborne said, "We've been passing out food, hygiene kits, and beds, which are critically needed right now, so we've been distributing beds to individuals that lost everything.

After the news of the #BG Strong benefit concert was revealed, you might have heard more about the Good Deeds Club.

The event is scheduled for January 7 at SkyPAC. The non-profit that supports tornado survivors will receive all of the money. Tuesday, December 28 at noon, tickets go on sale. You can learn more about the concert here.
