GREAT NEED TO FOOD AND VOLUNTEERS FOR THOSE AFFECTED BY JANUARY 23RD TORNADOES!


Alabama has once again been hit with devastating tornadoes.  This time it is not as widespread throughout the south, although it did cover quite a bit of Alabama once again.  With April 27th still fresh on everyone’s mind, everyone took the tornado warnings very seriously and took shelter.

Please keep in mind that the damage is mostly to residential, some of which are VERY low income and elderly communities. This is not a federal disaster therefore the funds are just not there.

Over the past 10 months we have had the pleasure of working closely with another organization in feeding 1000s of people.  Food4Disasters.org is an awesome organization who will be setting up in the city of Clay in order to cook for those affected by the January 23rd Tornadoes.  We need your help in supporting them!

Please contact us if you can assist with any of these. We are also looking for monetary donations to help with further expenses. Call 256.429.9254 or email. Thank you so much!

PLEASE READ BELOW FOR IMMEDIATE NEEDS!

From Food4Disasters.org
“We have confirmed and dedicated our volunteers and equipment to set up and provide hot meals for Clay/Chalkville. The City officials requested us to help manage mass feeding for long term needs of their area. We have only limited start up supplies as we were not fully recovered from 2011 storms where we fe d over 36,000 meals. We need the support of our Christian brothers and sisters to manage what they have asked of us. We are asking for operating funds to buy cooking and travel gas as an immediate and most urgent need. I will have a more detailed material list after Saturday. We intend to obey what God h as shown as His will. We know if it is His will, we will be part of this relief effort.”
