Community Disaster Relief Hub Will Close Next Week

LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – A Limestone County church that has served as a disaster recovery center for more than two weeks will slow down operations next week, but other help remains for storm victims.

Clements Baptist Church volunteers continue to feed victims and volunteers, but starting this weekend they will stop serving on Saturday and Sunday. May 22 will be the last day of operations. Volunteers say the leftover donations will be given out to other local aid organizations to keep things in the community.

The church is still accepting donations of non-perishable foods and hygiene items, including toothbrushes, toothpaste, shaving cream, razors, soap and shampoo.

Food can include canned goods, can openers, bagged and boxes foods — anything that doesn’t need to be refrigerated.

You can also donate diapers.

Clements Baptist Church is located at 8690 U.S. 72, Athens, AL 35611.
