Making A Difference: Local Priest Helps His Hometown After Harvey

Posted: Updated:

ORANGE, TX (LEX 18)Thanks to many of your donations, one Central Kentucky priest was able to deliver a truck full of supplies to his hometown that was affected by Hurricane Harvey. 

"Always there is someone in need, and there is something that everyone can do. It doesn't have to be thousands of dollars," said Father Jim Sichko.

He started the weekend by lending a helping hand to a local church, to police officers, and even paid more than $5,000 in utility bills.

On Tuesday, he stopped by Orangefield's school district with a UHaul full of school supplies.

"It was $25,000 worth of items, 636 packages that are still coming," he said. 

Soon after the hurricane happened, he picked up lunch tabs and brought pizza to people in Orange, Texas.

With the help of people in Central Kentucky, Father Jim has brought more than $100,000 of aid to the Orange area.
