MADISONVILLE, Ky. (5/29/13) – The Jodi Powers Search & Rescue Technologies (J.P.S.R.T.) returned Tuesday morning from their trip to help the victims in Oklahoma.

“It was an incredible trip, there are not enough words that can express the experience,” stated Scott Heltsley.
 
The team was able to work on four different homes, cut trees and pass out 100 homemade cards that were made by children from different counties here in Western Kentucky. They were also able to take $10,000 in supplies and equipment and came up with 13 volunteers to help clean up the devastated community.
 
Heltsley was able to share a story about a little girl named Addy Roberts. With those cards and gifts that were given out, the Humanitarian Aid and Rescue Program (H.A.R.P) were able to make Addy Roberts day by giving her a wallet from another girl named Hailey. As soon as she received the wallet, Addy started coloring materials of old rooftops left by the tornado with sidewalk chalk. She then proceeded to sell her artwork to people, but stopped because her mom said so. However, people still came to give her donations for her artwork. The families in the community were so grateful for the touching cards that were passed out.
 
Scott Heltsley asks if anyone is interested or planning on going out to Oklahoma to help, you can call him at (270) 543-7522 for more information.
