We are just trying to do our part to help someone out. The Red Cross and other organizations can do a lot for people, but it was hard to get through to some of those groups. That eventually led to us looking at a map and seeing Linden, Ala. so we contacted them and asked if they knew of any way we could help.
Our plan is to set up a house and give a family a place to stay that may have no extended family or no place to go. We wanted to give them a place to stay for three or four months or until they could go home or find another place to go.
