Eight Days of Hope (EDOH) is responding to the deadly and devastating tornado that traveled over 100 miles, leaving many grieving the loss of loved ones and their homes in Mayfield, Kentucky.
“The damage is catastrophic. Our hearts are breaking for so many right now who have lost everything, who feel hopeless,” says Stephen Tybor III, EDOH president and CEO. “We have to do all we can to help this community see that recovery is possible in the midst of uncertainty.”
