Home Depot – City of Center Point distributes donations to tornado survivors
From The Tribune staff reports
CENTER POINT — The city of Center Point handed out over 1,200 boxes of food to those impacted by the Jan. 25 tornado.
Center Point began accepting donations at its city hall on Tuesday, and have since collected a large amount of bottled water, non-perishable food products, clothing, diapers, blankets, tarps and much more. Those items can be picked up at 2209 Center Point Parkway, across from Waffle House.
Some items Scott says are still needed include, batteries, flashlights, cleaning supplies and towels. Those products can still be delivered to city hall.
On Saturday, the city gave away the boxes of food for those in need. Volunteers loaded cars so people could simply pull through to receive goods.
Several homes were damaged by the tornado and cleanup efforts are underway. Hilldale Baptist Church was also badly damaged.
Scott thanked all who have helped, including Eye Care Alabama, Home Depot and other organizations and individuals.
“We want to help as many people as possible, so please spread the work,” said Scott.
