DRAW Responds to Lee County, Alabama after the deadliest Tornadoes since 2013
DRAW is currently responding to the tornadoes that hit Lee County, AL on March 3 – the deadliest in the U.S. since the 2013 Moore, OK tornadoes. Today, DRAW loaded up 225 buckets of supplies to take to the people of Lee County. With it being less than 24 hours since the tornadoes hit, authorities are still trying to grasp the severity and complexity of the damage. Their main focus is on locating and assisting survivors.
DRAW will be conducting an assessment when our team arrives in Lee County as to how else we can help – whether it’s sending more supplies, or first responder teams. Be sure to check out our Facebook page for further updates.
