Operation Compassion Continues Relief in Alabama

By , March 20, 2019

Almost three weeks ago Lee County, Alabama experienced a devastating EF4 tornado ripping through the Beauregard community. Twenty-three people were killed and scores were injured as homes and businesses were blown off their foundations, leaving little more than piles of splinters in its wake.

After the initial response by Operation Compassion which consisted of bottled water, food, hygiene buckets, blessing buckets and other products necessary for immediate survival, Operation Compassion is still responding.

Operation Compassion’s response for the residents of Beauregard will be ongoing as residents continue to clean up the debris and try to pick up the pieces of their lives. It is hard to imagine trying to deal with such amazing loss, yet this community is showing its resiliency.

Pastor Doug Click has a done an amazing job coordinating the delivery and distribution of goods and products as his church is operating as a disaster relief center. They are unloading our trucks and delivering products in smaller pick-up trucks that can more easily maneuver around the disaster site.

The Cleveland Daily Banner, the local newspaper for Cleveland, TN, recently published an article about Operation Compassion concentrating on disaster relief products that were sent to the Lee County tornado site. The Sunday edition featured the article on the front page with continuing coverage on page 5. The article was entitled, Operation Compassion Helps Alabama Tornado Victims.

As Operation Compassion continues its disaster relief response, we will need your continued financial support in meeting the needs of the survivors. Please join our relief effort today, give online, mail a donation or call and donate.
