Local organization speaks on surplus of tornado relief donations
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - The Housing Authority of Bowling Green sponsored a free disaster relief community giveaway this morning.
At the event, many were able to get basic household items, perishable foods, and more. Despite the fact that they ran out of items rather quickly, leaders of the organization said there is actually a surplus of items available for those in need.
WBKO News spoke with their project manager for more details. “We are such a community-oriented city with huge partnerships, and each one of those partners played a major part in receiving donations. So I believe that’s why we were seeing a surplus right now because the city of Bowling Green really did step up and take care of our residents. So now it’s just a matter of where do we put them?” Shannah Dixon said.
She also expressed that sometimes people just don’t know how to ask for help or where to get it.
