KNOTT COUNTY, Ky. — Four months after flooding ravaged parts of eastern Kentucky, a Louisville nonprofit and the mayor teamed up to assist one county.
SOS International, which is known for providing medical supplies to disaster areas, and Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer donated 200 laptops to Knott County.
The devices will be sent to the Knott County Technology Center.
“I pray that the difference is they’re able to get back to a normal pattern of life because during the pandemic, coming out of the pandemic and then to come full circle with a disaster where you lose everything, it’s kinda hard,” said Brian Jointer, SOS International’s health program manager. “It’s really rough and it put a lot of pressure on the school system there especially losing all the materials and the things that they did.
The laptops are being delivered to Knott County on Thursday.
