LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Lexington is opening a donation center at Consolidated Baptist Church for anyone who wants to donate to western Kentucky communities impacted by the recent tornadoes.

The center will be open noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 15 through Friday, Dec. 18; and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 18.

  • Large plastic storage containers with lids
  • Large trash bags
  • Flashlights with new batteries
  • LED Lanterns
  • Gasoline cans (new, empty cans only)
  • Pull-ups for toddlers

In addition, new unwrapped toys will also be accepted as part of First Lady Britainy Beshear’s Western Kentucky Toy Drive:

  • Toys
  • Books
  • Electronics
  • $25 VISA or Mastercard Gift Cards
