Tornado victims need help

A tornado hit Enterprise, Ala., on March 1. My military daughter and son-in-law, along with three of their children, are stationed in Enterprise. They live less than two miles from Enterprise High School, which suffered eight casualties. My daughter and family were hit head-on by the tornado, and their house and all of their belongings were destroyed. Fortunately, all five of them survived with minor injuries.

They are in temporary Red Cross accommodations at present, but when these accommodations are exhausted, they will need to find a new place to live, food, clothing, dishes and utensils, pots and pans, basic furniture, bedding, toiletries … literally everything!
