Disaster Relief Teams Respond to Tornadoes in Williamsburg

Serving a cup of cold water in Jesus' name . . .

With the sudden hit of multiple tornadoes across the state on Wednesday, Alabama Baptist Disaster Relief began on Thursday morning with the set up of a command center in Montgomery that has deployed over 2,500 volunteers. Chainsaw teams, shower units, cleanup/recovery teams and feeding units are saturating north Alabama. Food began to arrive at the feeding units on Monday. Child care units were deployed on Monday. Teams are still arriving from other states. Dozens of teams from Alabama are on the field with additional teams from Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, Michigan, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida.

Many churches across the region are preparing meals and distributing food, water and clothing to those affected by the storm. Thousands of volunteers are serving in many capacities. More than 30 churches are serving as collection points or distribution centers for goods collected from around the state.
