Avoid Mold Due to Recent Flooding

Emergency management officials estimate that at least 200 homes across Daviess, Hancock, Henderson, McLean, Ohio, Union & Webster counties sustained significant damage from recent severe flooding. 

One major problem left in the wake of this disaster is the growth of mold. Area families must act quickly to ensure that mold does not take hold in their homes, causing potential health and environmental issues.

GRADD is partnering with our local Red Cross chapters to help residents get back on their feet. In addition to food and clothing replacement, our goal is to raise funds to purchase at least 200 clean-up kits (which include: a bucket, mop, broom, bleach, rubber gloves, scrub brush, all-purpose cleaner / disinfectant, hand sanitizer, and garbage bags). Each kit costs $25.

To make a tax-deductible donation, please visit, call 1-800-928-9094 or mail a check (payable to GRADD or American Red Cross, for the “Stop Mold Campaign”) to any of the following locations:


3860 U.S. Highway 60 West

Red Cross – Big Rivers Chapter

P.O. Box 1745

Owensboro, KY 42302

Red Cross – Cardinal Chapter

P.O. Box 99

Henderson, KY 42419

Area residents who need assistance are encouraged to contact local American Red Cross emergency services director Evelyn McCarty at (270) 315-1009.
