HARRISBURG – Following aftermath of the devastating tornadoes that tore through parts of Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee, the Fowler Bonan Foundation and Kentucky State Sen. Danny Carroll are partnering to assist with ongoing relief efforts.
Together, Sen. Carroll and the Fowler Bonan Foundation are partnering together to host a toy giveaway, providing toys to children who have lost their homes in the Marshall County area and surrounding region. The toy drive is in collaboration with the Abundant Life Worship Center in Calvert City, KY.
“Many lives have been lost and communities across the Midwest have been devastated. The destruction has been felt throughout the region, with Kentucky being one of the areas hardest hit by the disaster,” Dale Fowler, Chairman of the Fowler Bonan Foundation, said. “Our Foundation’s mission has always been to help those in need and when something like this happens, state borders don’t matter. What matters is showing compassion and support to our neighbors.”
“Communities in Western Kentucky have been left in shambles,” Sen. Danny Carroll said. “As the dust begins to settle, I want to thank my friend, Senator Fowler, for reaching across state lines to help our residents.”
The Fowler Bonan Foundation had been collecting gifts to give away at a local downtown holiday festival in Eldorado, partnering with the Galatia Dollar General. Shortly after the tornadoes struck the region, Kentucky First Lady Britainy Beshear made a public call for holiday toys and donations for area children impacted by the crisis.
The Fowler Bonan Foundation delivered their contributions to Senator Carroll’s office earlier this week.
The Fowler Bonan Foundation is a Southern Illinois-based charity that seeks to provide clothing and meals to children and families in need throughout Southern Illinois. More information on the Foundation can be found at FowlerBonanFoundation.com
