Appalachia is home to many of PRT’s community members and staff—our friends and families have deep roots in the mountains and hollows of Eastern Kentucky, Southwest West Virginia, and Southwest Virginia. We have many colleagues on the frontlines of the recent flooding disaster in these areas. We know firsthand and through our Members’ eyes how great the need is and that it will take years of hard work and dedication to recover and rebuild. The time will come when we can help with the rebuild, but we know the need for emergency relief support is urgent now.
In response, Fahe’s Leadership Team is issuing the 2022 Flood Relief Challenge to assist our flood-impacted Members and the communities we serve together during their time of need. Fahe’s Senior Staff has already committed $7,000 in individual donations to the 2022 Flood Relief Challenge and welcomes all our colleagues, Members, funders, partners, friends, and families to contribute. 100% of the money raised will go directly to impacted Members to support their operations so that they can focus on what you all do best: responding to the needs of the people and communities you serve.
If you’d like to contribute to the 2022 Flood Relief Challenge, please send a check to Fahe with “Flood Relief Challenge” in the note. Checks can be mailed to Colby Lilly’s attention at Fahe, 319 Oak Street, Berea, KY 40403.
100% of the proceeds raised will be passed to Fahe Members actively engaged in flood relief efforts.
In addition to launching this fund, Fahe has established a Flood Resource Center at https://fahe.org/ky-flood-response-resource-center/.

A special thank you to Pam Johnson for issuing this challenge and for her dedication and leadership in the face of this historic event. We hold those of you impacted by the flooding in our hearts and prayers. Again, thank you for all you do and your kind inquiries about your flood-impacted colleagues.
