ATLANTA --  Caring for Others has decided to allow its annual Community Day celebration on Saturday, May 21 to serve a dual purpose.

The homelessness prevention organization will welcome families struck by the recent tornadoes to the event.

With 23 pallets of brand new clothing and home goods to join the 10,000 books that had already been slated for distribution during Community Day, Caring for Others wants tornado victims to know they have somewhere to turn.
