Our mission is to assist in rebuilding those areas of our state affected by the storm and to assist Alabama families in-kind

On April 27, 2011, tornadoes struck the great state of Alabama leaving massive destruction in its wake. Hundreds have died and many more have been left homeless. Victims are in need of the most basic supplies: food, water, and clothing.
Building the lives of families who lost so much will require the help of many. Please consider joining this effort to help families all over the state of Alabama.

Alabama coach Anthony Grant and his staff spent Friday afternoon passing out supplies to families throughout the hardest-hit areas of Tuscaloosa from the deadly tornado that ravaged the state Wednesday.  Now he's hoping to do even more.

 Grant created a fund Friday morning at Bryant Bank in Tuscaloosa in response to the countless text messages he said he received from colleagues in the college basketball community asking how they can help those in need. The storm is blamed for 316 deaths in six Southern states. A reported 36 people died in Tuscaloosa alone, according to an official report.  

"We're trying to do whatever we can to help buy meals, anything since these people lost everything,'" said Grant by phone as he was driving away from the devastation Friday. "Some people were smart enough to leave their homes but they came back to rubble."

This was once a neighborhood with homes to over 100 families
