This Hip2Save.com Deal was hand-posted on Tuesday, June 7th, 2011 at 2:22 pm.
As most of you know, we will be embarking on the Hip2Help Tour in early July and are planning to sponsor between 1-3 families in 4 different communities along the way. Thanks to the help of Hip2Save reader volunteer Sarah in Elmore County, Alabama, we are honored to introduce one of our sponsored families in Alabama, the Hall Family. The Hall family consists of dad, mom, boy (age 10) and girl (age 13). As you can see from the pictures above, the Hall family lost their entire home and is currently living with family members in the area until a rental house becomes available. Here is a little about their story:
On April 27th, the family was sitting down eating dinner and watching the news. Dad walked outside and heard tornado sirens going off “I walked back in and saw the storm cell on the news,” Dad told me. “We decided to go to my parents house who is not far from where we lived.” It’s a good thing that they did because when they came back to their house all that was left was 11 years of debris.
If you want to help us support this family through donations, here is what is needed:
* Kitchen supplies
Beds (already donated!) and bedding (twin, full/queen and king-size bedding is needed)
* Bathroom linens
* Dining room table
* Living room furniture
Please mail donations for the Hall Family to the following address:
Note: If your donated items are not immediately needed by the family, they will be stored in this location until we arrive in July.
