FNB Presents Check for $65,000 to Mayfield Graves County Tornado Relief Fund
FNB Bank is pleased to announce that a check was presented for $65,000 from funds donated to the general FNB Disaster Recovery Fund to the Mayfield Graves Tornado Relief Fund organization. The Mayfield Graves Tornado Relief Fund is a 501-C3 non-profit organization dedicated to the post-tornado recovery efforts in Mayfield and Graves County.
“FNB is thankful for the many generous donations that were contributed to our Disaster Recovery Fund following the tornado that left our community devastated,” stated Sally Hopkins, FNB Bank President and CEO. “After much consideration, we feel that the Mayfield Graves Tornado Relief Fund and those who are involved within this organization know the needs of our community best and will utilize the $65,000 to maximize the positive impact on those in need in our community.”
The Mayfield Graves Tornado Relief Fund board members include Mayfield Mayor Kathy O’Nan, Graves County Sherriff Jon Hayden, Graves County Judge Executive Jesse Perry, Retired Judge Tim Stark, and others heavily involved with the recovery efforts in Mayfield-Graves County. The organization utilizes a screening process to determine who will qualify for relief funds. The funds are currently being used to provide up to a $1,000 allowance for those who need vehicle repairs or a new vehicle due to tornado damage. They are also using funds to build numerous houses for tornado victims through the Homes and Hope for Kentucky organization.
The week following the devastating tornado, FNB established three accounts to benefit those who were impacted by the disaster. Two of the accounts were opened to benefit students and families of Mayfield Independent School and Graves County Schools who were impacted by the disaster and the corresponding funds for each account are controlled and dispersed by school employees. The general FNB Disaster Recovery Fund is still accepting donations and any funds received will continue to be given to non-profit organizations serving our local communities.
