Homes and Hope offers rebuilding and repair help for tornado victims

By LESLIE McCOLGIN

Homes and Hope for Kentucky, with funds collected by Mayfield Rotary Foundation, will help people with repairs and even home replacement. I already know one person with minor damage that would be unable to replace a double pane window missing one pane and a few shingles as they wouldn't have money to meet a deductible.

" many of the services for this project are being donated, funds are needed to purchase building materials and pay for other construction costs.  Labor is being provided at NO COST by Mennonite Disaster Services and other qualified non-profit volunteer organizations."
