Mother Natures Wrath Spawns Colorado Kindness

Last week’s tornado outbreak read like a horror novel as dozens of tornadoes hit several southern states including Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee and Virginia, resulting in the deadliest single day for tornados since 1925. Across the country we hugged our loved-ones tighter watching the evening news, as our hearts heaved for families of the deceased and missing.
Yet just as soon as the dust had settled, the Mile High Chapter of the American Red Cross was planning their course of action. They started last Friday by sending 6 volunteers and 3 staff persons to Alabama. By Friday afternoon, an additional 5 people joined the group. At last count, a total of 14 volunteers and staff persons from Denver are in Alabama aiding the victims. The group includes disaster response, health services, public affairs, IT and mental health persons.
As more knowledge is gained about the situation, more volunteers from Denver may be sent to join the more than 3,700 Red Cross workers from around the country who are assisting the 16 affected states.
