Askewville Volunteers Serve Hot Meals To Tornado Victims

The disaster left behind after Saturday's storm is bringing out the best in many in the east.

In Askewville in Bertie County, community members are serving up hot meals at a local church. They're donating clothing, food, supplies and their time, helping their neighbors get through this crisis.

"The good part of being in a small community is everybody's family, everybody knows one another, and when this terrible crisis came, everybody just jumped together," said Pastor Roy Denton.

Pastor Denton's church was the only building in town with electricity, until around 8:00 Monday night, 2 full days after the storm hit, when dominion power got electricity restored to the area.

    I went to our church (Askewville Assembly of God) today after work to see what I could do to help with the food for the tornado victims. The overwhelming response from the community to help others brought me to tears. People were everywhere…Handing out supplies & clothing, delivering food, cooking, making plates & organizing, it was simply awesome. Pride welled up in me, our church and the community was giving everything they had to help others. If God were to speak to us now he would say “well done my good and faithful servant”. My heart goes out to the people who lost everything in this storm. God loves you and he is our only real comfort in this world.
