Laurel church takes tornado relief supplies to Tuscaloosa

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - Members of a Laurel church and a state Baptist association have teamed up to assist tornado victims in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

Tuesday, a truck carrying dozens of boxes of household supplies left St. Elmo Baptist Church for a relief center in that storm-ravaged city.

The supplies were collected over the last few weeks after a few church members visited the area to see first-hand the devastation from the tornado that struck on Apr. 27.

The supplies were collected from churches in Leake, Scott, Jones, Wayne and other counties through the East Mississippi Baptist State Congress.
