The one-year anniversary of the devastating tornadoes that ripped across Alabama on April 27 is coming up quickly. So much has been done... but there is still so much left undone. Habitat Birmingham continues to play a key role in recovery in the region.
In the first quarter since we launched this campaign in December, Habitat Birmingham has coordinated and completed repairs on 41 homes for individuals and families who sustained damage on April 27. The repairs range from replacing vinyl siding, fixing broken windows, removing mold from prolonged exposure to the elements and replacing roofs. Habitat Birmingham is partnering with the Central Alabama Long-Term Recovery Committee, local funders, and various disaster recovery volunteer groups to help the community.
Habitat Birmingham has committed over $150,000 to support these repairs in the last quarter - much of it from grants secured to assist with recovery. Much of the local funds for disaster recovery is depleted.
Won't you consider making a donation to support the recovery in the Birmingham region? Do it in honor, or in memory, of those who suffered loss on April 27.
