DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - When communities are hit with tragedies the Wiregrass shows up. The Wiregrass is known for stepping in to help those who need it--and currently, several local businesses and organizations are collecting supplies for those affected by tornadoes that ravaged parts of the country.

We’ve already seen businesses in Enterprise and Slocomb begin to collect supplies, but now a Dothan church is doing their part to help out.

Destiny Church in Dothan is accepting supplies and donations for tornado victims in the central U.S.

”Then we are going to pack the truck as large as we can, and then we are going to take it up there, and then we will distribute all those things that are in need,” says Pastor Jevon Goode.

Pastor Goode also reminds us how donations are even more important during this time of year.

“We want make sure people are helped during this tragic time especially before the holidays”

This is not the first time the church hosted a drive. They also collected donations in 2020 during the Texas water crisis.

“We made a post one day and exactly 14 days later we had a Uhaul full. Once we got connected to the church in Texas, once we got there, we backed the truck up to the church the next morning they had a crew there. And things went so well in that situation that we honestly feel we can do it again in this situation.” says Derrick Oliver the Executive Director of Equally Yoked.

The church will be accepting donations Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9 AM - 4 PM and Tuesdays from 6 PM - 9 PM until the truck is full.
