In a much anticipated weather event, three people succumbed as a result of a tornado in the Settlement Road community of Carrollton, AL.  Numerous others were affected, and Pickens Community Action is working to offer relief to residents of that area.

As volunteers are helping with clean-up efforts, meals will be provided for them as well this Friday.


Though any loss of life is a sad event, it hits a bit differently in smaller, close-knit communities.

Anyone willing to assist in clean-up and relief efforts should contact Pickens Community Action, which can lead you to the proper channels for effective service.

If you are knowledgeable of any immediate needs, please leave them in the comments section or contact us directly.
