The Brownsville Community Church is holding a fundraiser Sunday, May 26 at 9 a.m. for the victims of last Monday’s deadly tornado in Oklahoma.
The church, located on Brownsville-Hartland Road, will serve coffee and muffins and take donations for those who lost their homes and possessions when a massive tornado struck the town of Moore, just south of Oklahoma City.
Laurie Hall, one of the organizers of the fundraiser, said the tragedy in Oklahoma touched the church’s congregation.
“We went through the flood and people helped us,” Hall said. “We just thought, let’s give them our support and help them rebuild.”
Hall is working on getting some entertainment for the gathering.
Donations will go to the United MEthodist Committee on Relief special fund for the disaster.
