Two High School Students Hoping to Make a Difference
LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – Two girls from Clements High School are organizing whats called “Fill A Ford.”
It’s been more than a week since deadly tornadoes ripped through north Alabama. The severe weather took two lives and caused extensive damage in Limestone County. Residents are working to clean up, but there is still a long way to go.
Eleventh grader Savannah Solomon and tenth grader Maddi Hairrell are organizing “Fill A Ford” and are asking people to stop by one of two locations Saturday morning.
They will be taking donations from 8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. Saturday at the Tractor Supply parking lot next to Highway 72 and Hobbs Jewelers in Athens or at the Rogersville Volunteer Fire Department at 36 Wheeler Street.
Items they are looking for are toiletries, food, clothing and pet supplies. Some victims are asking for gas cards to get around. Monetary donations are also accepted.
If you have any questions, you can contact Maddi at 256-702-7285 or Savannah at 256-497-6127.
