PARIS, Ky. (LEX 18) — While the family of Breonna Taylor waits for the results of the Attorney General's investigation into her death, many supporters are looking for ways to help.

That's what small business owners Allie and Josh McIntosh wanted to do.

They run Central Kentucky Kayaking in Paris, and decided to donate any money from Sunday rentals to Taylor's family.

"What can I do besides just making my stance known on Facebook? What can I do more? What platform do I have? And this is what we've got," said Allie McIntosh. "You can be a small business, a small local business, and still make a difference."

The business normally closes after Labor Day, but decided to stay open this weekend to help the Taylor family.
