Convoy of Hope On The Ground in Alabama

Springfield’s Convoy of Hope has a team on the ground in Lee County, Alabama after an outbreak of tornadoes that has left at least 23 people dead.

“We have sent a tractor-trailer load of supplies to help the community with immediate needs and we have additional personnel and equipment on standby ready to depart,” Convoy of Hope national spokesperson Jeff Nene said in a statement.

The tractor trailer was loaded with items like food, water, cleaning supplies, and tarps. Nene told OI that in some cases they also send items like rakes, shovels and other equipment for helping to clean up but could not verify if those additional items were on the first truck to Alabama.
