The Farmers Federation's director of agricultural legislation David Cole, state Rep. Pebblin Warren, Macon County board member Bob Moore and governmental and agricultural programs intern Martin Smith stand with some of the $500 worth of supplies purchased by the Macon County Farmers Federation being sent to West Alabama storm victims.
TUSKEGEE, Ala. - In the weeks following the destructive April storms, county Farmers Federations have shown compassion for storm victims across the state by providing service, food, money and supplies.

With the help and leadership of state Rep. Pebblin Warren, D-Tuskegee, the Macon County Farmers Federation donated more than $500 worth of goods this week to benefit disaster relief efforts in West Alabama.

Warren is working in conjunction with state Rep. A.J. McCampbell, D-Demopolis, to assess the needs of smaller towns in Marengo, Sumter, Greene and Hale counties who were devastated by the April tornadoes.

David Cole, the Alabama Farmers Federation's director of agricultural legislation, worked closely with Warren and Macon County Federation board member Bob Moore to purchase the most needed goods for the West Alabama area.

"I talked with Rep. Warren, who recently had a conversation with Rep. McCampbell, and he informed her that the greatest needs were cleaning supplies, disinfectants and diapers, so we bought those items in addition to mops, brooms and disinfectant spray," Cole said.

Cole said he was impressed with the cooperation between Rep. Warren and the Macon County Farmers Federation in their efforts to aid struggling communities.

"We appreciate Rep. Warren taking the lead on this disaster relief project," Cole said. "We also appreciate her giving the Macon County Farmers Federation the opportunity to collaborate with her."
