Rebuild and restore event helps storm victims

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Motorcyclists in Montgomery organized the Rebuild and Restore event in order to help storm victims affected by the tornadoes on April 27th.

Members of the Faith Full Gospel Baptist Church on Highland Avenue organized the event at the state capitol building and members rode their motorcycles all the way to the church.

Church members say four of their sister churches were destroyed during the tornadoes and they want to help them in their time of need.

Event organizer Elizabeth Williams says, "After the storm happened, we really wanted to do something to give back."

Life South Community Blood Center also had a mobile station on site to conduct free health screenings.
