Several companies have joined forces to help their tornado-devastated communities. On Dec. 10-11, tornados touched down across 128 continuous miles in Western Kentucky, creating the deadliest funnel in Kentucky's history.
Hearing about the devastation Rev-A-Shelf, part of Jones Plastic & Engineering located in Louisville, KY, joined forces with P&L Express transportation and other vendors to send 47,868 lbs. of supplies to the region.
"Driven by our employees asking if there was something we could do to help, we quickly rallied a team together," said Creighton Jones, VP of operations for Rev-A-Shelf.
"It was both a proud and humbling moment to see the 53ft. truck with water, clothing, and toys headed towards Mayfield."
Along with donations from the company, alerts were sent out over social media for those in Louisville and surrounding areas to drop off contributions. Employees and residents alike answered the call providing much-needed items.
Another transport for early next year is in the works.
Those who are interested can learn more via Rev-A-Shelf's social media pages or make direct donations through the "Team Western Kentucky Tornado Relief Fund."
In total, 45 pallets were sent, including 18 pallets of water, 2,000 facemasks, 10,000 latex gloves, four gallons of hand sanitizer, 500 pairs of socks, 302 gloves, cleaning supplies, and several jackets and blankets.
Special thanks to P&L Express, 5 Below, Clint Chemicals, Kyana Packaging, Karen from Costco, and of course, all our hard-working employees who assisted with the purchase and transportation of all the items.

Proudly serving the industry since 1987
