Tyler Union Helps With Relief Effort After Devastating Tornadoes

When the town of Jacksonville, Alabama and surrounding areas were hit by devastating tornadoes on the night of March 19, Tyler Union team members were quick to respond by donating supplies, working with local shelters and helping with debris clean up.  The destruction left in the storm’s wake was unimaginable and cleanup and rebuilding will be ongoing for years.  Tyler Union continues to raise money for the relief fund and work with the Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce on the needs of the affected areas.

Lori Denton, Director of Business Development for the Calhoun County Economic Development Council said, “Local industry response has been overwhelming. The surplus donations of high demand items, financial contributions, labor, time, and meals, displays what it means to love your neighbor. We are so proud to represent the industries in Calhoun County because of the unwavering strength found in the people of this community. We are so thankful to our industrial partners that have already reached out and are continuing to work alongside the Calhoun County Economic Development Council with the relief efforts.”
