Tornadoes To Donate Toys To Mayfield, Kentucky On Saturday

With the memories of the Taylorville tornado from 2018 still fresh in many minds, the tornadoes that swept through Southern Illinois, Western Kentucky, and Ohio may bring back all of those memories from the storms. Towns like Edwardsville, Illinois; Bowling Green, Kentucky; and Mayfield, Kentucky have been changed profoundly by these storms. Taylorville High School is going to do something about it.


On Saturday, December 18th from 8 AM until 10 AM, the Taylorville Tornadoes Football team will be hosting a toy drive at Taylorville High School for the community and children of Mayfield, Kentucky. With Christmas right around the corner, Superintendent Dr. Chris Dougherty says that this is something that allows us to help.


The toys will be delivered on December 19th. As Head Coach Jeb Odam says, “Our football program just feels that if we can put a smile on a young child’s face during this trying time, then this is worth it.”
