LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Value Market) -- As we watch the tragic reports of the damage and loss from the March 2 tornado outbreak, ValuMarket realized how lucky we were here in the Louisville Metro area to be spared any major damage or loss of life. In that regard, ValuMarket has been spurred into action to assist our Indiana neighbors who were not as fortunate.

As we watch the tragic reports of the damage and loss from the March 2nd tornado outbreak, ValuMarket realized how lucky we were here in the Louisville Metro area to be spared any major damage or loss of life. In that regard, ValuMarket has been spurred into action to assist our Indiana neighbors who were not as fortunate.

Effective immediately, all ValuMarket locations will serve as a drop off point for anyone wishing to send non-perishible foods, cleaning supplies, clothing, blankets and other basic essentials.

ValuMarket will be running trucks with food and other items to the area of Henryville, IN as long as the need persists. The ValuMarket Big Truck will also be at the Anthem 5K tomorrow morning for those who wish to bring items for donation to the race.

“Seeing the devastation on the news was heartbreaking enough,” said ValuMarket Vice President James Neumann. “But we traveled up there tonight to see if we could lend a hand and were shocked to see the loss and destruction firsthand,” he said. “I knew we had to help our neighbors anyway we could.”

All five area ValuMarket Grocery Stores will collect needed items daily and take them to Henryville, IN on a regular basis.

ValuMarket operates 5 area grocery stores. 315 Whittington Parkway in the Hurstbourne Plaza, 7519 Outer Loop in the Outer Loop Plaza, 5301 Mitscher Ave in the Iroquois Manor Shopping Center, 1250 N. Bardstown Road in the Mid City Mall and 205 Oakbrooke Drive in Mt. Washington, KY.
