St. Matthias Episcopal Church is in the thick of relief efforts in tornado-stricken Tuscaloosa, Alabama. (And news of the Episcopal Diocese of Alabama’s response is featured prominently on its homepage.)
From the Tuscaloosa News:
John Baird, who lives in Coker, made his way into Tuscaloosa on Saturday because he wanted to help victims of the devastating April 27 tornado.
“Being as close as I was to the tornado, and just seeing it and just knowing that I was spared, my home was spared, everything that I had was spared, I just wanted to go come out and do good for others,” Baird said.
Baird was one of hundreds of volunteers who assembled at St. Matthias Episcopal Church on Skyland Boulevard. The church was a staging area to assign workers to various tasks throughout the city.
