Churches organize tornado assistance

March 26, 2003

Albany-- Churches are setting up donation centers to help the victims of last week's tornadoes in Mitchell and Worth Counties.

First Baptist Church in Albany has parked its van and trailer at 400 Pine Avenue, to accept donations for the tornado victims. You're asked to donate canned food items, personal hygiene items, baby food and diapers, insect repellent, and cleaning items.

"There are over 200 people whose homes have been displaced or destroyed," Dr. Jim Ramsey, pastor of Albany's First Baptist Church. "There is loss of life. These are our hometown folks and our neighbors, and we need to do what we can to help them out."

If you want to help the tornado victims, you can donate items in Albany at the First Baptist Church until 9:00 tonight, and until 4:00 PM Thursday and Friday.

All the items donated will be taken to the tornado relief distribution center in Camilla.
