In the aftermath of a devastating line of thunderstorms that spawned deadly tornadoes through the southeast, Operation Compassion was initiating its disaster relief network at 1:30 AM. Partners from across the country were calling offering product and relief goods to the hardhit areas. Nine (9) semi-trucks of goods and supplies was among the first offering.

In addition, Operation Compassion will be opening disaster relief sites in Tuscaloosa, Cullman and Birmingham, AL, Trenton, GA, Chattanooga and Cleveland, TN. From these areas, help and assistance can be offered to as many people as possible including those living in nearby rural areas. All of the assets Operation Compassion has at its disposal will be brought to bear on this disaster, including 4 shower trailers, 3 mobile cooking units capable of cooking 3,000 meals each day and dry vans capable of moving product.
God’s Pit Crew will also be instrumental in working volunteers to help with debris removal and house repair and rebuilds. The tarping of roofs and cutting down trees toppled in the storm will also be a top priority for the volunteers.

Please help your neighbors that have been affected by these storms with a generous donation to Operation Compassion. Every dollar moves life-sustaining product into the disaster area for immediate distribution.
