On Wednesday, June 23, torrential rains swept across central and southern areas of the Mountain State causing severe flooding, loss of life and extensive damage to many West Virginia communities.

As the water recedes, WVU Extension Service faculty, staff and volunteers continue to mobilize with the rest of the University to provide flood relief and aid to fellow West Virginians in need.

As the University’s outreach entity in each of the state’s 55 counties, we have the unique opportunity to reach thousands of West Virginia citizens during this time and unite efforts to support those who are dealing with the aftermath of the disaster.

Those who would like to support WVU Extension Service’s flood relief efforts may donate at WVU alumnus and native Ken Kendrick has committed to making a $500,000 donation to flood relief efforts in southern West Virginia to match gifts made by fellow WVU alums and donors up to that amount.
