Tampa Pastor Gathers Donations In Ky. For Fla.

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)-- A Tampa-based pastor and his family spent the weekend here in Lexington to escape Hurricane Irma.

They plan to head back down South Wednesday and want to bring a truck-load of clean-up supplies for their community with them, but they need our community's help.

"They were evacuating in our area, so we're from this area. We're from the Lexington area, so we just came home for a few days."

But they're going back down south with much more than when they arrived

"While we were here we decided we need to take some stuff back home."

They are looking for food, water, and any donations to help them tackle the major clean-up efforts that will take place in their community over the next few days, possibly weeks.

"Bring things that, If you think that maybe your house was going to flood and you were going to have to clean it up, bring those things. Bring mops, bring cleaning materials."

They are hoping to fill this truck to the top, but they're on a tight schedule. They plan to head back down to Florida tomorrow, so they're only accepting supplies until noon Wednesday at the Old Paris Road Church of God in Lexington.

Being from the area, Vorce knows it's not an impossible goal.

"The guy that rented us the Uhaul, the clerk there, he said, 'you know what I want to be a part of this' and he took $100 out of his pocket and said this will go towards the truck. I know that Lexington is a generous area, people have great hearts here, they love people."
