"Our neighbors in Eastern Kentucky are hurting after last week's record-breaking flooding devastated communities," Carmichael's Bookstore, Louisville, Ky., posted on Facebook. "It is going to take a lot of time and a lot of resources for people to rebuild their lives, and we want to offer what support we can. This Saturday, August 6th, all profits from our three stores and website will go to Eastern Kentucky flood relief funds organized by Foundation for Appalachian Kentucky and Hindman Settlement School. We will also have an easy way for people to make a donation when checking out."
Carmichael's posted an update on Instagram Wednesday: "When tote bags are needed for flood relief efforts, you can count on booksellers to show up! (This is *maybe* 20% of them). @toastystavern is taking donations and collecting items for those impacted by last week's flooding in Eastern Kentucky. Anyone who makes a donation today, Aug. 3rd, will receive 20% off their entire bill. They are collecting can openers, frying pans, bug repellent, tote bags, dry food or baby wipes."
