FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) -- The Associated Churches in Fort Wayne are helping the people in Alabama.

Wednesday, they filled a trailer with clothes, toiletries, food, and water.

Volunteers will hit the road with the trailer Thursday heading to Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

These supplies will go to people whose homes were hit by the many tornadoes. Some of the victims have Fort Wayne ties.

“I think now they got about 300 people that they have not accounted for. I know in our family, we missing at least one person. So this food and water is going to churches that's there that can assist them in giving the things out to people right at their churches that they actually need it,” says Reverend Latham.

To make a donation, contact the Renaissance Baptist Church at 466-5542
