Close to 300 people have been killed in the devastating tornadoes that hit Alabama this week.

President Obama touched down in the state today and said he has never seen “devastation” like this before.

Many Americans have been hurt by this tragic turn of events; but many African Americans have also been affected.

There are several ways for people to donate to disaster victims in Alabama:

Online: go to www.alredcross.org and click on the “donate now” link on the homepage

Call: 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767) and you will be prompted to a menu that includes financial donations

Text: “Red Cross” to 90999. A response will include two options for donations, either to Japan or for Disasters: domestic and spring storms.

Governor’s Emergency Relief Fund: The Fund, part of the Alabama Governor’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, provides additional recovery assistance to Alabama residents who have exhausted all other coverage provided by relief organizations, government programs and insurance.

World Vision’s domestic relief team is preparing to survey the damage in Alabama and nearby states hit hardest by the storms.

Starting this weekend, team members will look for ways to partner with local organizations to help those most affected, including families who lost everything, the elderly and disabled.

Donations to the group’s Disaster Response in the USA fund will provide items like food and water, clothes and hygiene kits to those in need.
