Rolling Fork Strong: Community Fair Supports Tornado-Stricken Residents


In a display of community spirit, Rolling Fork is gearing up to host the “Rolling Fork Strong” fair, a vital event aimed at assisting residents impacted by the destructive tornadoes that swept through the area on March 24th. Set to take place tomorrow, June 24th, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the fair seeks to provide crucial resources and support to those with unmet needs.

South Delta Elementary, located at 138 Weathers Avenue, will serve as the central hub for this community-driven initiative. A multitude of vendors have united in solidarity to offer their assistance, making it a one-stop destination for tornado survivors seeking aid. Notable participants include FEMA, the Mississippi Public Broadcasting, the Small Business Administration (SBA), and the American Red Cross.

FEMA, one of the key contributors to the fair, urges attendees to bring their FEMA ID numbers for streamlined access to resources and support. The Mississippi Public Broadcasting will focus on catering to children affected by the tornadoes, providing them with specialized resources and information. The SBA representatives will be on hand to guide and assist individuals and businesses in need of financial aid. Meanwhile, the American Red Cross, renowned for its humanitarian efforts, will be present to offer aid and support to all affected individuals.

The fair’s reach extends beyond these major organizations. Various other vendors have enthusiastically joined forces to support the community in their recovery efforts. These additional contributors will offer a wide range of resources, including essential items such as food, clothing, and other necessities to aid those in need as they rebuild their lives.
