Thoughts & Prayers for Tornado Victims

You have no doubt by now heard about the devastating tornadoes that have ripped through the South - you may have even experienced some of the strong storms yourself.

We hope all of you, your family and your friends are safe and sound. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by these terrible storms.

You can also call 1-800-RED-CROSS or text "REDCROSS" to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

The Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services is another organization assisting tornado victims throughout the South, mobilizing feeding units and providing support where needed.

Please be safe as the storms continue to make their way east and north up the East Coast. And please keep everyone in your thoughts and prayers as the recovery begins.

I will be traveling to Tuscaloosa on Saturday to take whatever anyone can donate. My family lives there and are luckily ok but my mom said everywhere is sold out of water. Water & food are very important there right now. Also, any food, shoes, & blankets would be great! If anyone can donate anything please contact me. I live in Clemson. My e-mail is krissyrock1189 at gmail dot com. THANK YOU!
