Pelham helping victims of Oklahoma tornado

By NEAL WAGNER / City Editor

Pelham’s Realty South is collecting donations for those affected by the recent Oklahoma tornado through a partnership with the city and Susan Schein Automotive.

Donors can drop off items at the Realty South office at 3170 U.S. 31 in Pelham, according to an email from the Pelham Police Department.

After the items are collected, they will be driven to Moore, Okla., to benefit the tornado victims.

Needed items include water, non-perishable food items, cleaning supplies, new clothing and shoes of all sizes, undergarments, socks, T-shirts, sunscreen, aloe, new stuffed animals, new blankets, baby items, first aid supplies, plastic tubs of all sizes with lids and dog and cat food.

“We personally would like to thank everyone for their generosity and any assistance you can provide,” Pelham Police Department Executive Assistant Jennifer Smith wrote in the email.
