USA: Books for (Ala)BAMA

On April 27, 2011, over 100 tornadoes, ranging from F2's-F5's, tore through Alabama wreaking death and devastation. Thirty-one counties have been declared disaster areas. Hundreds were killed and hundreds more lost their homes, their businesses, and their schools. In Tuscaloosa, three elementary schools were destroyed. As a result of these schools and others in Alabama, Books for Bama has been established.

While volunteers continue to work relentlessly to clear the rubble and to take care of those left with little but the clothing on their backs, others are volunteering by collecting books and school supplies for children and the damaged schools. For those who would like to spread their love for books, books, school supplies, and monetary donations (checks should be made payable to : Dr. Lisa Scherff), send to:
