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:
“Long-Term” Supply Warehouse in Opelika - EMA has opened a 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
Furniture Donations – If you have furniture that you’d like to donate to tornado survivors, please call Lee Co EMA at 334-749-8161 to coordinate your donation.
East Alabama Medical Center Call Center Volunteers- The EAMC call center is open; hours are 8a-5p, Mon-Fri. This center is answering questions from survivors and volunteers interested in helping. It is located at the EAMC Foundation Building (407 W Thomason Circle Opelika, AL 36801). Volunteers will work in 2 hour shifts and will be provided information required to direct calls and answer questions. SIGN-UP: Call Center Volunteers can sign up to serve by contacting the call center at 334-528-MEND (6363).
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.
