CULLMAN – Local organization Karma in Cullman today announced relief efforts for victims of the fires in Gatlinburg. 

"Karma in Cullman is working on gathering items to aid in relief efforts for Gatlinburg, Tennessee," said Karma in Cullman Founder Rachel Bryant. "We have a truck going Sunday morning. We are needing bottled water, hygiene products, diapers, wipes, clothing, formula, coats, blankets and anything you feel may help these people in their time of need."

Items can be dropped off at the Karma in Cullman office located at 785 Alabama Highway 157 near the intersection of 69 and 157.

"For many, this is a family vacation tradition and some it is a family home," said Bryant. "Please help us reach out to our neighbors and friends to the north in their time of need."
