Carolinas/Virginia NAMA Host Tornado Relief Effort

Written by NAMA on Wednesday, March 7, 2012 , 3:32 pm

As you have seen and heard on the news, the recent tornados left a path of destruction, especially across Indiana. This hits especially close to home for Carolinas/Virginia NAMA member and regional director, Ann Camden, who like many of us, was at Commodity Classic when the tornado touched down in Nashville.  While Nashville was mostly spared, Ann’s parents’ home and family farm in New Pekin, Indiana was not.

“They lost the house, truck, barn and several tractors,” said Ann in an e-mail to fellow C/V NAMA member, Jeff Tennant. “It’s a total loss, but they are physically fine.” Ann’s uncle was at Commodity Classic so she rode with him to Indiana where she is helping her family pick up the pieces. Her parents have found a temporary residence and many in the community are helping them empty out the house and clean up the farm. 

If you would like to help Ann’s family, they are in need of Wal-Mart gift cards, Kroger gift cards, work clothes, work coats and work gloves. Contact Mary Cameron at Gibbs & Soell (, 919-870-5718) to coordinate your donation.

If you would like to help others across the Midwest and South who were affected by the tornados, you can also donate to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief.  To contribute, go to, call (800) RED CROSS (800-733-2767) or text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.  Contributions also may be sent to local Red Cross chapters or to the American Red Cross, P.O. Box 37243, Washington, D.C. 20013.
