With all the bad news surrounding COVID-19, people were eager to pitch in to help.

In 2013, an EF-3 tornado hit that city damaging more than a hundred homes and businesses.

“There were so many people in need back then and the community really came together, churches, this isn't about our church or any other church or any particular church or anyone, but this is about people coming together, the Body of Christ coming together, and helping one another,” said Pastor Andrew Hight.

The church is taking donations all week.

Saturday morning, trucks and trailers will be driving them up to Chatsworth to be distributed.

Donations can be dropped off at 5134 Joe Frank Harris Pkwy NW, Adairsville, GA, 30103-6361.
