Amazon: You can ship items directly to the church via Amazon. A few people have ordered cases of diapers, wipes and even food. Anything that you want to send would be appreciated!

Share it: Please feel free to share this information via your blog, email, Facebook, Twitter, whatever. The more people that know of this option, the better!

Used items: We will gladly accept used clothing, shoes, and household items. Please use your own judgment on if they are in good shape or not.
Wednesday my town was hit by a tornado. We suffered loss of homes, businesses, vehicles, etc. Praise the Lord we did not suffer many losses of life. Unfortunately, it wasn’t over. Later in the day, more tornadoes touched the ground in Alabama killing at least 194 people. This line of storms spanning 7 states took a total of 298 lives and more than 163 tornadoes reportedly ransacked the south.

Southerners are in dire need of some of the most basic necessities and I am working with my local church to start an online donation drive to help the victims of these storms. If you have any items that you would love to mail to us, we will gladly take them.

Here are a few things that we are in need of:
dishwashing soap
laundry detergent
hand sanitizer
clothing in all sizes
shoes in all sizes
small toys for displaced children
ziploc bags
bandaids and other first aid products
femine products
baby formula
baby food
toilet paper
individual juices
pet food and treats

We will gladly take anything that you are willing to send.
You can mail your donations to my church. We will ensure they get into the right hands. You have my personal guarantee that all donations will be distributed:

Disaster Relief
c/o First Baptist Church of Moody
902 Church Street
Moody, AL 35004

If you would like to send a monetary donation, please memo your check as Disaster Relief.
And above all, we request your prayers. God bless
