ALPHARETTA -- Leaders of a newly formed nonprofit group called Magnolia Disaster Relief are focusing on the "forgotten towns" hit hard by tornadoes in April.
Founder James O'Dwyer said those towns include Warm Springs and Trenton in Georgia.
O'Dwyer, a University of Alabama sophomore, said tornado victims in some smaller towns haven't received as much help as those in areas that have received more media attention, like Ringgold, Georgia, and Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
"We're trying to give them furniture, housewares, new clothes, pretty much everything you need to rebuild your life," O'Dwyer said.
Magnolia is holding a Father's Day donation drive in Newnan until 5 p.m. on Sunday at the GNC on Highway 34.
