Palins Help Alabama Tornado Victims Clear Debris and Rebuild

Todd and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today helped Birmingham, Alabama homeowners clear debris and brush, as part of Samaritan's Purse humanitarian mission to the tornado-stricken city, Samaritan's Purse reported.
“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.”

“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.”
This is the third time, Gov. Palin has performed humanitarian missions with Samaritan's Purse. Last December, she spent a weekend in cholera-stricken Haiti, an effort to which Gov. Palin also donated $1,750. In 2009, as Alaska's Governor, Palin conducted a humanitarian airlift to distressed villages in remote western Alaska, personally handing out supplies and care packages to every resident.
