Helping Tornado Victims: How Non-Profits Are Rebuilding Lives

In the aftermath of the tornadoes that swept the southeastern states on April 27, Americans have once again stepped up to lend one another a hand. There are numerous non-profits each doing their part to help, and we thought we’d take a moment to recognize their efforts.

Alabama State Board of Missions has organized numerous feeding units, chainsaw and mud-out units, childcare, showers, chaplains and much more to care for the immediate needs of those whose homes and lives have been ravaged by the storms.

Praying Moms is collecting and sending boxes of diapers, baby food, canned foods, tools and blankets to send to Christian Service Mission in Birmingham, AL.

A local pastor and businessman in Hackleburg, AL (the community hit by the only F-5 tornado) worked together to quickly set up Hackleburg Helping Hands, an organization dedicated to distributing funds to effect local change. A simple application and approval process has been set up to identify and meet the needs of the people.

And our good friend, missionary James Satcher is working in both Georgia and Alabama providing bottled water and food to victims and volunteers as well as assisting with clean up efforts.

Many, many more organizations are working tirelessly to bring peace and restoration to the people and towns all across the south that have been touched by this tragedy. We thank you all for your dedication!

If you are looking for a way to serve or donate we highly recommend these listed above!
