An EF-3 tornado tore a mile-wide path through Albany, Georgia. This January tornado was on the ground for just over an hour. Hundreds of homes and businesses were destroyed or damaged in this city of 75,000 residents. A large part of Albany was without power for a week as power crews traveled from all over Georgia to repair the local power grid.
Our partners were very grateful for the help we provided.
Gleaning For The World delivered tractor-trailer loads of bottled drinking water, blankets and mixed household supplies to residents. It made a huge difference in an area that was described by officials as ‘looking like a nuclear bomb went off.
After such devastation, emotions were running high. Many residents found temporary housing. Some stayed in damaged homes. All were thankful for supplies.
We are continuing to work with families impacted by the tornadoes in Georgia and Louisiana. If you would like to contribute to this ongoing effort, click below to make a financial donation.
