After the devastating string of storms smacked the south yesterday, the death toll is currently at 178 and rising. With hundreds of residents homeless, President Obama has declared a state of emergency in Alabama. Clearly, now is the time to help. Here are some quick and easy ways to lend a hand in Alabama to help ensure that everyone has food on their plates in the days ahead.
