DJJ Cares: Harris County/Talbot County Tornado Relief

March 15, 2019

In times of trouble, Georgians are known for pulling together and helping their fellow citizens whenever and wherever help is needed. At the start of March, a series of terrible tornadoes hit south-central Georgia. In Harris and Talbot Counties, people were left homeless as the tornadoes destroyed homes and knocked down acres of trees. Governor Brian Kemp declared this part of the state a disaster area and encouraged everyone to pitch in and provide support for those in need.
