    Several people that visit our truckin’ livecam have donated via Paypal for the tornado victims. How do I get these monies to those that need it? I lived in Alabama for 20+ years, and the pictures I’m seeing are just heartbreaking!

  12. Heather Whitehead says:

    Ohatchee does still need donations – particularly canned, ready-to-eat, and pre-packaged foods, and bottled and canned drinks and juice packs. They have plenty of clothing and other supplies, but are out of food and similar consumables, and people are still without power in that area.

  13. Debbie McCune says:

    I have a question. I have heard that people who get their food stamps the end of the month got food stamps on May 1st. That these benifits were to replace the food that was lost due to the disaster. That they then will get their regular benifits again on the day that they are supposed to get them again. Is this true does anyone know?
