Tuscaloosa, Alabama Tornado 2011
David Robertson grew up in Tuscaloosa, Ala. and played baseball for the University of Alabama. In the days following the tornado Robertson and many others had difficulty locating their family members. The devastation caused by the storm was apparent. The tornado killed 53 people, including six University of Alabama students. The resulting property damage totaled to $2.4 billion, making the tornado the costliest single tornado in United States history at the time. Robertson’s personal ties to the affected area served as motivation for creating High Socks for Hope. In the years since the tornado, thousands of families have benefitted from the help which includes over 300 homes partially or completely furnished by High Socks For Hope in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. In addition to furnishing homes, HIgh Socks For Hope helped families in a multitude of ways which are too numerous to list.
"I have been fortunate enough to be given a stage as a Major League Baseball player to help raise awareness for the victims of these disasters. My wife and I created High Socks for Hope to lend support to those suffering in the wake of natural disasters, especially after the immediate attention subsides." -David Robertson
