Stay classy Chris.

By now, it’s no secret what is going on in Eastern Kentucky… it’s devastating.

Historic flood waters have claimed the lives of 37 people and counting, with hundreds of Kentuckians still unaccounted for. Thousands and  thousands are without shelter, power, food… basic necessities like soap and toothpaste.

Homes have been destroyed, roadways and infrastructure, and even cell service was out.

According to Courier Journal, President Joe Biden has approved a major disaster declaration to send emergency federal funding to relief efforts in Breathitt, Clay, Floyd, Johnson, Knott, Leslie, Letcher, Magoffin, Martin, Owsley, Perry, Pike and Wolfe counties.

It’s just an awful scene and more rain is expected today and tomorrow, and pretty much throughout the rest of the week.

We saw Eastern Kentucky native Tyler Childers don some rubber boots and get to work with the recovery efforts, but he isn’t the only one.

Another Kentucky boy is putting in the work as well.

Staffordsville native Chris Stapleton was spotted at a local Walmart buying supplies for flood victims.

Thanks for all the help for our surrounding areas in need.”

His charity, Outlaw State Of Kind, has also pledged to donate funds to the Kentucky Red Cross, as well as the Appalachia Crisis Fund.

Outlaw State of Kind is Chris and Morgane Stapleton’s charitable fund that supports a variety of causes that are close to their heart. The Outlaw State of Kind Fund was founded in 2016 and is administered by the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.

“Our hearts are with Eastern Kentucky & everyone who has been affected by the devastating floods throughout the region. The Outlaw State of Kind Hometown Fund is donating funds to the Kentucky Red Cross and Appalachia Crisis Fund to aid those in need.

We will be sharing links to additional resources and information, and ask that you please consider a donation to support recovery efforts if you’re able.”
