MTS Community Outreach Activity
19 May 2011
Thank you to all local employees who volunteered on Saturday, May 14th to help the Salvation Army center in Guntersville! We had a good turnout - of the 15 volunteers at the center, 12 were MTS employees and their family members. Our help was needed and greatly appreciated.
They received two truckloads of donations while we were there, one from Tennessee and one from Kentucky. We were able to assist in unloading the trucks and unpacking boxes of donations, sorting the items so they could be distributed easily. We also prepared boxes of food for families (canned goods, boxed dinners, peanut butter, cereal, rice, juice, etc.) and sorted toiletries. As tornado victims came into the center to receive assistance, they were able to pick up whatever they needed - boxes of food, cleaning products, and clothes. This center is serving Guntersville and the Sand Mountain community, an impoverished area that took a direct hit from the tornados.
