    FYI, Amory, where this bank is located, is only a few miles from Smithville. Amory is the nearest town to Smithville. Some of the bank’s employees live in Smithville. Just adding this to make sure you understand any donation through this channel will get to the people needing it.

    rob,
    I’m on staff at Celebration Church in Shreveport, La and we are trying to find a church or Pastor in the Smithville area that needs help cleaning up and rebuilding a house or work on a church. I believe we can send a crew over for at least 5 days. if you have any info please contact me.

    It’s a weird thing to find someone that lives in the same town as you do on the world wide web, but alas, here you are after a google search on the Smithville, MS tornadoes.

    I wanted to let you know that my husband and I have setup a website to help the survivors of the Smithville, MS tornado (and for anyone in the surrounding areas that need help) at http://www.helpsmithville.com. We also have a Facebook Page setup at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Smithville-MS-April-27-2011-EF-5-Tornado-Recovery-Effort/105118166241490 if you want to see if you can connect with anybody wanting to make contact with another church to arrange for donation drop-off or specific needs.

    I’ll have to come over there and see you one of these days and introduce myself. Thanks for everything you are doing!

      Wow is right, Colleen! Thanks for letting us know about your relief efforts. It’s been fantastic to see the community pull together in this tragedy. I’ll keep a check on your activities. Maybe we can work together soon. And we’d love to have you come over and see us sometime!
