Support Georgia tornado relief efforts: February 4, 2013


Tornadoes struck North Georgia counties Bartow and Gordon last Wednesday, January, 31. First assessments show that 250 homes were either destroyed or have major damage according the American Red Cross Georgia. City and county government resources and other community organizations like the Adairsville Church of God and the Salvation Army, and the American Red Cross have provided shelter, food and emergency assistance to families affected by the tornado.

To date, the 70 Red Cross volunteers and staff members have provided more than 83 overnight shelter stays for displaced families, served more than 1,523 meals and 7,121 snacks at shelters and through mobile outreach in partnership with the Salvation Army and distributed more than 709 clean-up, comfort and bulk items to help communities in need. 

If you are interested in helping these communities in need right now we recommend making a donation to the American Red Cross or the Salvation Army of Georgia, specifying support of Tornado relief efforts for Bartow and Gordon Counties. 

Please contact your philanthropic advisors, Rob, Erin, Barrett and Audrey, at 404-688-5525, to make a gift to support relief efforts.
