Mountain athletes step up to help flood victims
HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - As Eastern Kentucky begins the clean-up process following catastrophic flooding, mountain athletes are stepping in to help.
The Floyd Central Jaguars traded practice jerseys for cleanup gear, getting to work helping clean up homes and businesses impacted by flooding on Saturday, July 30th. Every single member of the team joined the effort.
The Shelby Valley Wildcats helped out one of their own affected by the floods. Led by coach Anthony Hampton, the team helped clean up in Virgie.
The East Ridge Warriors helped with clean-up in Elkhorn City. One viewer wrote in, saying “my grandparents would have lost a lot more if it wasn’t for their help.”
