Some law enforcement officers and businesses in Baldwin County are lending a helping hand to those in Eastern Alabama, after a tornado ripped through Lee County Sunday.

Several Baldwin County sheriff's deputies left for Lee County just Tuesday to lend a hand to first responders still looking for people unaccounted for in the area.

They're hoping to relieve some of the first responders there who have been working around the clock.

Robertsdale's Greer's Grocery Store donated some Boston butts, which the deputies stayed up cooking overnight to take to victims.

Other businesses in Baldwin County like Bar 45 at One Club in Gulf Shores are also lending a hand.

Bar 45 is donating $4.50 for every dollar made at the bar and restaurant on Fat Tuesday. 

So far we're told more than $6,500 has been raised and counting.

Bar 45 at One Club is still taking donations online for those who would still like to help out. Click here for a link.
