An organization based in Annapolis, Md., Is one of many to come to the aid of those affected by the tornado that ravaged the region earlier this week.
Deloris Bullock, Executive Director of Blessed in the ministries of technology, said the state’s emergency management office had asked them for help coordinating relief efforts in the wake of the tornado in Anne Arundel County on Wednesday.
“We are raising funds so that we can give gift cards to those affected by the tornado that swept through Annapolis,” Bullock said.
The organization is asking people to donate more funds so that they can give gift cards to people who need them. Bullock also said the storm not only left debris and structural damage, but now some people may be facing food insecurity issues.
“We have a lot of residents who have lost electricity, who have lost all of their food in their refrigerators,” Bullock said.
Bullock also highlighted the damage to businesses and said it will result in lost revenue.
“So we are not only talking about the loss of businesses, but also the loss of income during the closure of those businesses, so the need is great for our residents who have been affected,” Bullock said.
Bullock said they would also ask Anne Arundel Food Bank to help them with their efforts.
