Violent storms that struck the small town of Enterprise in southern Alabama, left more than 50 people hospitalized, and eight students dead. They were trapped during class when a tornado partially destroyed their high school.
Elaine Roberts of the American Red Cross in Enterprise, stated that their were 1200 students effected by this tragedy through the loss of their friends and homes. “It was devastating! DO what you can … get as many bears here as you can … as quickly as you can. The kids are at a loss.” Thanks to the effforts of Board Member Craig Klainberg of Berklay Shipping and Charley Clark, son of Board Member Mary Clark and Rev. Stuart Clark, 1200 teddies will be delivered. Charley, who lives on the Post in Enterprise, and his 131st Aviation Unit of the Alabama Natioanl Guard will airlift 3 skids of teddies by helicopter, if necessary, to get the bears to the kids quickly. Sometimes comfort comes in small packages…. and sometimes with extrordinary effort.
