The Director for Education at the Hippodrome State Theatre, Kim Berry, says she and her husband will be driving a truck full of relief items to an emergency shelter in Tuscaloosa for victims of the recent devastating tornado. Items can be dropped off at the box office at the Hippodrome State Theatre until 6:00 tonight in downtown Gainesville. The emergency shelter is being run by the Tuscaloosa Parks and Recreation Authority. Berry talked with WUFT-FM’s Donna Green-Townsend about what items are needed.
