Tornado Relief Report: 40 Large boxes on way to Hamilton, AL

The Adair County Way in action: Thanks to Columbia church of Christ, sister congregations, and this wonderful community, relief is on its way to Hamilton, AL, for distribution in Hackelburg, AL

By Dean Roach

COLUMBIA, KY (2011-05-19) - The Columbia church of Christ has been accepting everyday essentials for those affected by the recent tornadoes in Alabama.

We received overwhelming support from our congregation and sister congregations, as well as this wonderful community.

We packed up over forty large boxes of items which filled a fourteen-foot trailer. The items were picked up by the Richmond church of Christ on Thursday morning and are headed to Hamilton, Alabama.

Hamilton is a short distance from Hackelburg, where the items will be distributed to all who are in need.

We wish to thank everyone for their tremendous generosity in this time of great need. -Dean Roach. Because He lives.
