LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Help is on the way for several Prospect restaurants and bars. Neighbors have organized a donation drive for cleaning supplies.

They'll go to the people at Captain's Quarters, Bearno's By the Bay, Cunninghams and the Harrods Creek Tavern.

"We live out in Prospect and the restaurants and bars out here treat all of us like family, and we just want to return the favor," organizer Ashley Shadburne said. "If you look at the pictures, you know they're going to need just about everything."
