SEC Donates $500,000 To Alabama Tornado Recovery Efforts

The Southeastern Conference has announced it will contribute $500,000 to the cause of rebuilding Alabama communities impacted by April 27 tornadoes. The donation will officially be given to the University of Alabama to assist affected faculty and students. Several member schools have already offered help on their own, including Auburn, LSU, Mississippi State, Ole Miss and South Carolina. And Penn State, too!

Conference commissioner Mike Slive on the donation:

The tornados that went through Tuscaloosa have severely impacted the lives of students, faculty and staff of the University of Alabama, and will continue to do so for months to come. We express our sympathies and prayers to everyone who has been impacted by this storm and we are pleased to be able to assist in the recovery efforts.
