Organizing a Clothing and Toiletry Drive for Tornado Victims...

We, the Cardin girls (Brandy, LeAnne, and Haley), have been racking our brain to find some way to help our hometown (our friends and family) that has been devastated by the tornadoes in Alabama and Georgia. We have been in contact with some friends and family that have seen the devastation first hand to determine the biggest necessities. The goal we have set for ourselves is to have enough items by Tuesday evening to head out Wednesday morning to fill a U-haul truck. The items most needed will be listed on this page. We are willing to pick up or meet you to get them.

We will be at Higdon Holiness Church on Wednesday.  Exact time to be determined.

Recommended Items:
*Gently-used clean (preferably on hangers) clothes of all sizes both genders
*Toiletries such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, shampoos, soap, toilet paper, etc
*Hand sanitizer and Anti bacterial wipes
*Wash clothes and towels (a great need)
*Gently-used shoes, socks, and underwear (new and in packs please) of all sizes
*Baby items such as disposable diapers (all sizes), formula, baby wipes, etc.
*Water...bottled or gallon (for most are still without)

Anyone who would like to donate gift cards to Wal-mart, Target, Publix, or any local store we will be glad to purchase the items.

Feel free to contact by email brandy.cardin@yahoo.com or puddin0408@yahoo.com or by phone (615) 397-7937 and (931) 338-3423.

  1. This is a great thing ya'll are doing Brandy! I was out at Rainsville yesterday and we had probably 75-100 people stop and ask if they needed food or water but there was only 1 woman stop with a zip lock bag with toiletries to offer.

    Also anyone in the area that has power and water that might have friends or family affected by the storms please offer to wash their clothes some of them were able to find clothes but they are extremely dirty.

    Ya'll will touch peoples lives doing this, it touched ours with every car that drove by offering food, drinks, help moving/ load things and offering toiletries. It's unbelievable out there and the way the people stepped up to help is heartwarming.
