Alabama Tornado Needs List

The following list has been developed by Adventist Community Services Disaster Response. We handle the donations management during disasters.

Please go to and decide which of the following items you would like to send. Your donation of goods will be sent to survivors via mobile distribution or distribution centers manned by volunteers. Thank you for helping those who have been impacted by the tornado.
