After the devastating tornado that struck Hattiesburg, Mississippi last week, many organizations have stepped up to help with the clean-up. Mormon Helping Hands volunteers came from around the state to assist, and were joined by former NFL quarterback Brett Favre.
Favre’s hometown of Hattiesburg, Mississippi was hard hit by the category F-4 tornado. Over 4,000 residents were left without power, homes were destroyed, and schools and businesses severely damaged. Thankfully, there were no reported fatalities.
Favre was contacted by friends Wade and Dolly Walters, (Dolly is the sister of Faith Trussell, who’s pictures are shown) a married couple from the Hattiesburg Stake. He participated in the clean-up efforts, and donated a skid steer that was used by the missionaries and other church members to clean up debris from the Oak Grove ward bishop’s property, which received severe damage.
