Hurricane Harvey hit Houston, Texas in August 2017 and not too long afterwards Hurricane Irma struck the Caribbean, Florida and other southern states in September 2017, tearing apart neighborhoods, businesses and schools. Our brothers and sisters affected by these hurricanes need help and Hand in Hand relief fund will raise money for this cause. The funds raised will be distributed among various organizations who will help to rebuild and restore the hardest hit areas.
Last week 91 year-old war veteran, John Helton, who lives in McDonough, GA wanted the right to fly his American flag on his property, but his home owner’s association wanted to fine him $25/ day. The home owner’s association indicates it’s against the rules to have a flag flying outside of the days and times written in the covenant. Many supporters in the community raised their flags in protest and as a result the home owner’s association has changed the rules to allow the flag to be flown. Mr. Helton said, “Staying in the military all my life, I know what a flag is and I know what it means, and I’m just glad we’ll be able to fly our flag every day like we want to,” (courtesy of myfoxatlanta).
The southeast experienced a horrific tornado on Wednesday, April 27th, that touched down with great force. The area strongest hit was Tuscaloosa, AL where the death toll rises. The tornado also touched down heavily in fifteen counties in Georgia. Many families have been left with only remnants of their lives…. a lot of memories simply torn to pieces and lives loss. It will take some time for them to recover, but they could use your help now.
