Join Alabama News Network in Raising Money for Lee County Tornado Victims
Alabama News Network is raising money to help Lee County tornado victims. The EF-4 tornado that hit the Beauregard community on Sunday killed at least 23 people and injured dozens more.
We need your help in raising money for the Community Foundation of East Alabama’s Lee County Tornado Recovery Fund. The money will stay in Alabama and will go directly to the people who need it most.
As of Wednesday, over $5,000 were raised from phone calls alone during our telethon.
“The outpouring of concern about the Lee County residents has been amazing – all kind of volunteers, blood donations, equipment and all types of things. This is just another phase of that which we’re going to need. We’re going to need funds. There are immediate needs that are being taking care of and there are long term needs,” says Clay Torbert, a board member with the Community Foundation of East Alabama.
