Help Nurses and Victims of the torrential rain and flooding in Kentucky

August 2, 2022

Torrential rain has pounded eastern Kentucky from Friday, July 29th to the present resulting, in massive flooding causing immense devastation, loss of life, personal property, and uncertainty. Because of the flooding, it has been reported that currently more than 30 people have died, and many are unaccounted for.

ANA supports our nurses personally and professionally impacted by this tragedy and their families. ANA has been in contact with our leaders of the Kentucky Nurses Association and supports its leaders, their families, and members. As nurses and communities recover from the devastating effects, here are some ways you can help.

Emergency funds

To provide relief for RNs and individuals within the impacted communities, who have suffered loss or damages from the flooding, the Kentucky Nurses Association (KNA) and its charitable arm, the Kentucky Nurses Foundation (KNF) have set up a Flood Relief Fund. The fund accepts tax-deductible donations with the sole purpose of helping provide much-needed supplies to the communities in need.

  • You can donate to the Flood Relief Fund here.

Volunteer opportunities

Nurse License Plates Now Available

The long-awaited Colorado Nurse License Plate is now available. Building on work started by Jennifer Allen-Thomas, RN, the Colorado Nurses Foundation (501c3 organization), along with the Colorado Nurses Association, worked with House Representatives Kyle Mullica and Daneya Esgar to bring a Colorado Nurses license plate to Colorado.

With the publics’ support, these license plates will result in increased awareness and recognition of nurses in Colorado. Money raised from the sale of license plates will allow several non-profits to provide nursing scholarships for underrepresented populations. The plate was designed by artist Melanie Simonet, who provided her services at no charge as a gift to nursing in Colorado.

For a $50.00 donation to the Colorado Nurses Foundation, you will receive a certificate to take to the DMV. The certificate will allow you to purchase the plates. The $50.00 certificate donation fee will go to support scholarships for underrepresented nurses via the Colorado Council of Black Nurses, Inc., Hispanic Nurses Association, Philippine Nurses Association of Colorado and the Colorado Nurses Foundation Jennifer Allen-Thomas Scholarship.
