Christian Appalachian Project volunteers to help in Alabama

More than 120 volunteers with the Christian Appalachian Project Disaster Relief Team will spend two weeks in Marshall County, Ala., helping with cleanup efforts from last week's deadly tornadoes and distributing supplies to victims of the disaster.

The crew, which includes volunteers from several states, is expected to arrive Tuesday, according to a news release.

The Christian Appalachian Project, which is based in Kentucky, will provide a mobile shower truck with laundry facilities, as well as tractor-trailers loaded with supplies.

Marshall County has reported five fatalities as a result of the April 27 tornadoes, according to the release.
