Alabama group collecting donations for typhoon victims in the Philippines

Posted: Updated:

Wings of Grace Relief Center is a non-profit organization that is associated with Forest Lake Baptist Church. After the April 27, 2011 tornado that swept through Tuscaloosa the group formed to help gather supplies for those who lost everything. Since then the director has been to Moore, Oklahoma to help set up the same time of permanent relief station.

Currently Wings of Grace is collecting used summer clothes and shoes for those impacted by the storm in the Philippines.

The director said local storm survivors are pitching in the help those recently impacted. "We just know how important it is. I'm going to just tell you our clients that are coming to us are even now bringing their own personal clothing that the children have out grown or they have outgrown," Terri Hibbard said.

The local group is working with a movement called city impact, which is planning to bring an 18-wheeler to stuff full of clothes and shoes.

Wings of Grace is accepting donations now until December 15th, and employees are on hand to help sort and pack the donations.

Tyra Figgers said, "It makes me feel good knowing that I'm able to help other people."

The director added, helping others deal with the aftermath of natural disaster is becoming second nature and her group enjoys "paying it forward."
