Community responds to T-G’s call for help


Rural King employees Braden White (left) and Phillip Long are pictured with a pickup full of dog food and other supplies the Hillsboro store donated to The Times-Gazette’s effort to get needed supplies to tornado victims in Kentucky. The Times-Gazette had numerous other donations dropped off Tuesday from local residents. The newspaper will make its first delivery of the donations Thursday, but will continue to collect donations for the foreseeable future. Donations can be dropped off at The Times-Gazette at 108 Gov. Trimble Place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday. Those interested in providing supplies can contact Sharon Hughes at 937-708-9443, Ann Elam at 937-763-3108 or the newspaper’s general office number at 937-393-3456. Kassie Juillerat Bennett, a former Hillsboro area resident who now lives in Lexington, Kentucky is on the scene helping in Mayfield, Kentucky, said that two of the bigger needs, since there is no heat or electricity, are blankets and battery operated lights.
