Baptist Hill Community Residents Get Early Thanksgiving

A church organization provided food to March 1st tornado survivors in the Baptist Hill Community.

Members of the Dothan-Eufala District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church passed out food baskets to 50 storm victims; the majority from Enterprise's Baptist Hill Community.

The church continues to help those who lost so much just eight-and-a-half months-ago.

"We doubled our efforts to help these folks who had lost so much. Families still suffering from the storm, neighborhoods as well," said Allie Bell Reddick.

Each day, new homes are built, evidence of the storm is quickly fading, and Thursday's Thanksgiving meal gesture is important in so many ways.

Lascharn Sconiers, a March 1st tornado victim, says, "We are so thankful to have survived the storm and thankful to all those who have helped us, and continue to do so."

In coming weeks, Lois Boykins will move into her brand new three-bedroom home on Carroll Street, which is a blessing since she lost everything in the tornado. "We are blessed after losing everything, we are thankful," she says.

The Dothan-Eufala District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church decided to concentrate their relief efforts in Enterprise this Thanksgiving.
