Hammers. Tarps. Buckets. Toilet paper.

When tornados hit, these little things can mean the world to victims. We're assembling 385 tornado buckets with these supplies and delivering them to the United Methodist Disaster Relief Warehouse in Decatur to have on hand. With God's help, the buckets will be delivered within 24 hours after disaster strikes.
