Palins Join Samaritan's Purse to Assist Alabama Tornado Victims

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

Today, Governor and Todd Palin joined Samaritan's Purse in assisting tornado victims in Alabama.

Here's video footage of the Palins working hard and Governor Palin discussing the need to pray for those who have been affected by the disaster and encouraging people to donate to Samaritan's Purse:

As posted on Samaritan's Purse Today:
Todd Palin, four-time winner of the Iron Dog off-road snowmobile race across Alaska, along with his wife, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, joined Samaritan’s Purse volunteers to help tornado victims in Birmingham, Alabama, on Wednesday.

“I came here to work hard,” Todd said. “There’s no point in being here if you’re not going to work hard.”

After getting a safety briefing and talking with volunteers, the Palins joined a crew assisting homeowner J.L. Price. The couple helped haul off brush and debris, and with the rest of the crew, prayed with Mr. Price.

“It feels great to be working out here,” Sarah said. “I hope more people sign up with Samaritan's Purse so they can be blessed like I am today.”

The Price home took a direct hit from a tornado and sustained extensive damage.

“It’s hard to imagine anyone surviving this,” Todd said. “What a terrifying time it must have been for them. This just really gets you.”

While going through the debris, Todd found a wooden plaque bearing the Price name and nailed it to a tree, one of the few things remaining standing on the property.

This is the third time the Palins have participated in Samaritan’s Purse relief efforts.


"I appreciate their willingness to bring hope to people in need,” Graham said.
