Alabama State Bar Donates to Tennessee Tornado Relief

MONTGOMERY, Ala – The Board of Bar Commissioners for the Alabama State Bar voted at its March board meeting to donate $1,000 to the Tennessee Bar Association to be directed towards relief efforts from the Mar. 3, 2020 tornadoes.

Alabama State Bar President Christy Crow asked for the board’s support for the donation, and it was approved unanimously.

“We were sorry to learn about the tornadoes that ravaged the city of Nashville, and our thoughts are with all those impacted during this difficult time. As Alabamians, we certainly understand and sympathize with the devastation of tornado damage. Being our sister state, we hope this donation will help with your recovery efforts in a small way,” said Crow.

The $1,000 check, at the request of the Tennessee Bar Association, was delivered to the Tennessee Legal Community Foundation, which will be distributed to partners in other affected counties.
