JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

Once again in times of disaster volunteer groups are stepping up to help out. Today in Adamsville a couple of groups came together to provide food to those affected by the storm.

"Our goal is to disperse out help, to help anybody that's in need during a disaster," Jennifer Berryhill said.

Berryhill is with a volunteer group called the Central Alabama Disaster Help Group. The organization grew out of a Facebook post. The group cooked three pounds of spaghetti along with bread and water provided 56 plates to give out in Adamsville and Graysville.

"I live in Fultondale. I was familiar with tornadoes in 2011, so just to see this brings all of that back. So I know the need. I'm here to help whoever I can," Berryhill said.

The Shady Grove Volunteer Fire Department helped load up and deliver the food. The department has been working long hours for four straight days now. They could still use more volunteers.

"The largest problem we have is still downed trees and trying to clean up debris areas we have. We have asked them if they want to help the can come to us here it at here at the fire department," Tamara Garrett with Shady Grove Volunteer Fire Dept. said.

Graysville Mayor Mary Sue Morgan stopped by the fire department to support the volunteers. Morgan says her city could also use help.

"We do appreciate everyone wanting to come and help. They need to come to city hall where we are getting organized to send the groups out," Morgan said.

So if you would like to help out, you can come to the Shady Grove Volunteer Fire Department and offer your services. Or if you want to help in Graysville you can go to the city hall there. Those who are interested can go to Facebook to the Central Alabama Disaster Help Group.
