Description: Piles of vegetables and other provisions kept under guard alongside a building in Gainesville, Georgia, shortly after the tornado of April 6, 1936. Vast quantities of food were vital to the relief effort, and the Red Cross hauled in pure drinking water in barrels for the people's use. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), Works Progress Administration (WPA) workers, American Legionnaires, policemen, and firemen from all over the state, as well as numerous other volunteers, assisted with the city's clean-up and relief efforts.
