LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A donation fund run by the state that offers help during the coronavirus outbreak has raised nearly $2 million. More than half has come from a contribution by the Kentucky Colonels. The Team Kentucky Fund has received funding from about 7,000 donors. It offers financial aid for people adversely affected by the pandemic. The Colonels board of trustees approved an immediate $1 million contribution to the fund this week.
