The Yellow Hat Society presented a $300 check to East Brewton tornado victim Angela Spears on Monday, June 28.
Angela took cover on her couch inside her mobile home during June 19 tornados spawned by Tropical Storm Claudette. She was thrown out of her front door, 100 yards, into her neighbors’ yard. According to Angela, the couch and loving hands of God saved her life.
