OBR officially is in operation, set up in Pinson, Alabama. Thanks to Lynn Entrekin for early recon and in dealing with a tough situation on the ground in Jefferson County. Our SE Coordinators, Gary and Dionn Lanton will be on site by noon tomorrow. OBR will finish this operation after noon meals are served on Sunday, January 29. Estimated counts are 1,500 meals per day through Sunday.
If you are able to volunteer, please respond on our FB page at www.Facebook.com/operationbbqrelief. We estimate needing 10 to 12 OBR volunteers to be onhand each day. If you can bring smokers, it will help. I will post a suggested list of items to bring on the FB page.
