The devastation is immense, and there are so many lives that have been lost and many more lives altered forever. As resources are making there way into the more populated areas it is become apparent that are outlying and more rural areas that will take longer to receive donations and assistance. We want to find a way to help reach out to those outer areas to help bring assistance sooner.
Birmingham Fun and Family Magazine is partnering with 3D Air Service LLC to help reach out into those areas. Last weekend, Jeremy Holladay of 3D Air Service LLC took supplies along with gasoline into those areas to help bring much needed relief. He was overwhelmed by the devastation.
Also, Element3 Church in Tallahassee took 5 gallon jugs of gasoline into Jackson County, FL. This is a county that is mostly rural, and Marianna is in this county. Many of these residents are without power, and they will be for a while. Element3 Church was able to distribute many gallons of gas for people to run generators, chainsaws, and their cars. This way they can go to receive assistance. Eric Case is the pastor of Element3 Church, and he and his w
ife, Shana, are good friends. You can check out Shana Case’s Facebook page where she documents their efforts last weekend. They helped several hurting families.
This weekend 3D Air Service LLC and BFF Magazine will take donations down to Element3 Church for distribution in Jackson Co, but it will be specifically in Marianna and Alford, FL. Here is how you can help.
