Miami, FL (November 2, 2022) – Mission 500, the non-profit charitable organization dedicated to serving children and communities in need across the U.S., teamed up with Bates Security to acquire and ship over $200K worth of vital supplies to support the families impacted and recovering from the severe flooding in Eastern, KY.
Basic items such as water, food, hand sanitizer, baby wipes, socks and more were palletized and shipped via truck to the devastated area.  Mission 500 worked with local relief organizations, including the Christian Appalachian Project to ensure proper distribution of the supplies. Employees from Bates Security mobilized to assist and were instrumental in coordinating the efforts locally. Special thanks to Chris Isaac, Jessica Sutton and Jeremy Bates, of Bates Security for their dedication and hard work.
