After several tornados hit the Albany region of South Georgia, it left hundreds of families without homes. As people called for aid, U.S. Battery’s Director of Transportation Scott Perdue was contacted by an associate pastor from a church in Acworth, Georgia, and asked if the company would help in delivering food and supplies.
As a result of this outreach, the owners of U.S. Battery made the use of one of the company’s over the road truck and trailer available, along with U.S. Battery driver Tony Pitchford. “In just two days, the church managed to get enough donations of food, water and other necessities to fill one of our trailers, and we were able to get them to the people in Albany,” said Perdue.
“I cannot tell you how appreciative we are of your outstanding generosity,” said Rev. Chuck Smith, Pastor of Glade Rd. Baptist Church in Acworth, Georgia. “You were very instrumental in making the lives of those who lost so much, a little more bearable. Thanks to people and business like you, we were able to supply food, water, clothes, hygiene products, and many other necessary items to the victims.”
“U.S. Battery has manufacturing and distribution plants in Augusta and Evans, Georgia and are always ready to help people in need when necessary,” said Perdue. “This is no different from when we participated in the Convoy Of Care to deliver food and supplies to Louisiana flood victims last year.”
