St. Luke's volunteers from Mobile get a lesson in life helping Tuscaloosa tornado victims

From Alabama-

Three tents offered temporary relief from the mid-day sun sucking energy from all things breathing.

There was still half a day’s work ahead for the volunteers from St. Luke’s Episcopal School before they would climb back on the air-conditioned charter bus Monday for the cushioned ride home to Mobile.

A little lunch and some cold water gave the 33 volunteers helping with tornado recovery a needed boost of energy.

Even one day of their time proved valuable as wreckage remained very visible in all directions two months after the April 27 disaster.

“They still have a lot to do,” said Monique Hawkins, a 16-year-old junior at St. Luke’s. “There’s just tons of stuff that has to be cleared.”
