Operation Compassion Sends Aid to Georgia Tornado Victims

By , February 14, 2013

When a tornado suddenly ripped through the town of Adairsville, GA life changed for hundreds of people. Buildings and homes were destroyed and many were immediately homeless. Many churches became immediately involved in the relief effort. Operation Compassion partnered with Pastor Kyle Morrow who opened his church, Refuge of Hope, to become an emergency relief distribution center. Almost immediately, Operation Compassion began to send product to help those affected by the destructive power of the tornado.

According to David Lorency, president, “Kyle is an outgoing pastoral leader with experience in handling this type of disaster. He was a point man in the tornadoes that struck Birmingham, AL a couple of years ago. With Pastor Morrow’s leadership, he has served his community through a most difficult time.”


One of Operation Compassion’s disaster relief partners also responded. Mercy Chefs brought a mobile kitchen unit capable of serving thousands of meals and volunteer chefs came to cook. Mercy Chefs has been a long standing partner and has responded to countless disaster across the United States.
