Hattiesburg church sends volunteers to Alabama

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Members of a Hattiesburg church left Thursday morning for parts of north Alabama devastated by last week's deadly tornadoes.

Dozens of volunteers from First Baptist Church took several trailers filled with clothing, toiletries and other supplies for the victims of the April 27 tornadoes.

The volunteers will stay in the area through Sunday and are already making plans for a return trip.
