Churches send relief after deadly storms in the South


Ministries associated with Churches of Christ sent truckloads of relief supplies after severe storms and tornadoes ripped across Mississippi, Georgia and Florida, claiming 12 lives and demolishing dozens of homes.

Church members and volunteers unloaded two truckloads of supplies at the meeting place of the US 19 Church of Christ in Albany, Ga. The supplies, sent by Nashville, Tenn.-based Churches of Christ Disaster Relief Effort, are sorted into disaster kits that include cleaning supplies, food and other emergency needs. The ministry also supplies clothing and shoes.

After the storms, another round of severe weather pounded the New Orleans area, producing multiple tornadoes.

The Disaster Relief Effort sent two truckloads of relief supplies to the Louisa Street Church of Christ and the Crowder Boulevard Church of Christ.

Disaster relief ministries, including Churches of Christ Diaster Response Team and Disaster Assistance CoC, are working with congregations including the Kensington Woods Church of Christ in Hattiesburg, Miss., to distribute relief.
