Pastor Monnie Jones said it’s important for them to step up and help those in need.

“I know people have troubles and struggles all the time, but it is so important for people to come together and show the love, not just the Christians and the church community, but it’s the whole community that has come together and it’s so important because you never know that person that’s been devastated that you’re gonna minister to or that you’re gonna help out even if it’s just a bottle of water,” she said.

John Stanfill is a veteran and homeowner in Glenallen.

“We’ve lost pretty much everything we had, the store building down there, that house there belonged to us,” he said.

He said he’s appreciative of the extra help.

“I couldn’t believe it that these people bringing this much stuff around giving it out,” he added.

Debbie Jones is the pastor’s wife and helped out on Thursday.

“Until you get out here and really have boots on the ground you don’t realize how bad it is,” she said.

They also offered food Wednesday for those affected by the tornado.

We have got food at the church for anyone who was affected by the tornado.
