On the evening of February 24, 2016 a devastating EF-3 tornado hit the small town of Tappahannock and many other surrounding counties. This caused tremendous damage to houses, families, and the souls of our commuinty.


The Families impacted and Tornado Donation Center and  would like to thank everyone who has helped restore our community.

Many churches, schools, civic organizations, companies and individuals who donated time, resources and man power and have helped with the rebuilding process and for this we are all very grateful.  


The following video is a small thank you for all that everyone has done. Thank you and may God bless you all.

We are working with them to provide housing for Tammy and her daughter Britney until their new home is complete.
