Like so many in our community, our hearts are broken due to the death and devastation left behind from the recent tornadoes. We all are feeling a need to help as emergency efforts have turned to providing for the needs of those impacted. Here are ways you can impact the Lee County community through donation of items as well as serving hands on:
NEW Volunteer Centers – Any individual or group (14 and older) can report to a Volunteer Center to serve on a work site. You will be registered, given a safety training and a wristband, fill out a volunteer assessment, and be assigned to a site based on what skills you can offer. All types of volunteers are needed! Work includes packing boxes, hauling debris, tarping roofs, running chainsaws, and offering a listening ear. Work for as long as you can and head home when you need to!
NEW “Long-Term” Supply Warehouse in Opelika - EMA has opened a 2nd warehouse to store donated items for the long-term recovery effort. Items currently stored at the Smith’s Station warehouse will eventually be moved to this long-term warehouse.
Address: 309 Williamson Ave Opelika, AL 36801
Volunteers Needed 8a-5p, 7 days a week (central)
Minimum Age: 14
Drop off restaurant, grocery and gas gift cards at the Cornerstone Church office. This is very helpful since all these resources can be scarce for those impacted.
Visit the Lee County Emergency Management Agency website for current information.
Give financially to general disaster relief and directly to the two Cornerstone families impacted.
