One who has been to tornado relief area sends tips
By Maury Lewis
May I say something about what to send?
If you are giving clothes make sure they are clean without stains and rips.And it would be nice if you had them ready for someone to put on.If you wouldn't wear them don't send them
These people have been through enough, don't ask them to wear your dirty clothes and they shouldn't have to try to find a place to wash them.
Don't send things like used bars of soap. Yes, we saw that when we were in Alabama.
If you don't go through the clothes and have them ready some volunteer down there will have to go through them.
Mark them as ready to wear, have all been checked.
If you can afford to put them in the plastic containers, that would be great because the containers can be used by someone to hold clothes or food or other things.
They could also use new underwear and socks.
Thanks. - Maury E. Lewis
