Volunteers Sort and Pack Donations

Tuesday, August 30, 2016

The Calhoun County Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster Louisiana Flood Relief Drive began sorting supplies and getting pallets ready for a tractor trailer today. President Shannon Jenkins says 20 volunteers worked on packing the supplies collected at the Calhoun County Agricultural Center. Jenkins says they have enough supplies to fill one B.R.Williams tractor trailer. Jenkins says supplies came from all over the community. United Way RSVP Volunteer Oliver Mitchell says his participation in today’s work is a labor of love. He says Jesus instructed us all to help one another and to give to one another. Mitchell says he is following that charge. The volunteers will continue to load the supplies tomorrow. The supplies will arrive in Louisiana on Wednesday. You can still help to fill another truck for the folks in the Baton Rouge area. Urgently needed items are: mops, bleach, brooms, large heavy-duty garbage bags, paper towels, cleaning cloths, work gloves, masks, feminine hygiene products, canned goods and peanut butter. You can drop off your donations at the Pell City or Ashville Sheriff's Office, Odenville Fire Station 1, Springville Fire Station 1, Ribbons and Bows or Calvary Baptist Church in Odenville or purchase and leave at Piggly Wiggly in Odenville. You can also give a gift card by calling 205.837.7772.
