Robinson Family Tornado Relief Fund


My maiden name is Sonya Robinson and I'm originally from Opelika, Alabama: the location of the fatal E4 tornado that killed 23 people, 7 of which are from my family. The storm touched down Sunday and has left damage a mile wide and almost 20 miles long. The entire county has been affected by this storm and although many perished, there are still many family members who are in the hospital, shelters, and hotels. My relatives have lost almost everything due to this storm and we're creating this GoFundMe page so that we can gather relief funds for household items such as toiletries, groceries, and water, along with other basic needs like clothes and funds to help recover what was lost in the storm. Although the goal is set at $10,000, truthfully anything helps in this time and whatever you are willing to give will be a blessing. 

I, along with my son and cousins, will be updating this GoFundMe page with photos and status updates for those who have not seen the damage up close and personal. We'll also track updates of donations.

Thank you so much for your contributions in this difficult time. God bless you all.
