State - Regional

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – A resident of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, mobilized a relief effort to support Kentucky communities following the state’s deadly tornado outbreak.

Organizers said Toni Van Schoyck coordinated efforts to send a 53-foot truck “full of essential supplies” to support relief efforts in Mayfield, Kentucky, after the destructive tornadoes that happened in early December.

In partnership with Monat Gratitude, Van Schoyck gathered neighbors, friends, and Monate Market Partners to help plan the delivery of essential supplies to displaced residents in Kentucky impacted by the tornadoes.

Organizers donated 1,000 essential kits containing antibacterial wipes, band-aids, soap, lotion, body wash, shampoo, and conditioner. The supplies were transported to churches and shelters in the Mayfield area.
