MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) - From toiletries to towels and clothing to cookware, the donations came pouring in Monday outside the Madison County District 2 Office. However, organizer Darry Towry says more help is needed for the victims of last week's storms in Limestone County.
Towry is the mother of Madison County District 2 Commissioner Steve Haraway. She decided to put the drive together after seeing the devastation that followed the tornadoes. "When you see people lose everything they own, everything they've worked for their whole life... it's heartbreaking," Towry says.
As a result of Monday's efforts, volunteers sent a trailer full of non-perishable food to Athens. They also collected piles of clothing and household items. Now, those working with the storm victims in Limestone County say the greatest need appears to be for baby items, such as diapers; pet supplies, such as dog and cat food; and more non-perishable pantry staples.
The donation drive reopens Tuesday at 7:30am and will close at 6pm. The Madison County District 2 Office is located at 100 Plaza Boulevard in Madison. For more information, please contact Darry Towry at 256-508-1688.
