MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

North Alabama has shown time and time again that we help our neighbors when they're in need.

You could say we're in the "business of helping" and giving support that comes with a reward much greater than money.

There are so many people who know how expensive the recovery process can be, and anything you can get for free right now is truly a blessing.

Rogersville Mini Storage owner Bama Clines is offering storm survivors shelter for their cherished belongings and supplies.

"I would like to offer one month free storage here at Rogersville Mini Storage," said Clines. 

He says it's a good place to keep your valuables dry. He still has units available, and while Bama Clines says he isn't really physically able to get out and help clean-up, he can help you lock up your items.

There are many ways business owners are helping. Some are combining their abilities to reach the community and get out supplies.

Denise Tyriver with Ole Hickory Barbecue has seen the damage in her community of New Market. She's teamed up with Jennifer Bader of the Coupon Centsation Blog as well as Vicki White of Two Friends Gift Shop. They're collecting goods for the good of their communities.

"When your friends and your neighbors, and people you haven't even met yet are facing issues and need help, we're all able to help in some way," said Tyriver.

For more information on how you can pick up or drop off items you can visit thecouponcentsation.com blog, or Ole Hickory BBQ at 5061 Maysville Road in New Market.

You can also go to Two Friends Gift Shop near the Publix Shopping Plaza on Winchester Road.

For storage needs you can contact Rogersville Mini Storage at 256-247-5038.
