Kimberly Perry hands out food to those affected by the tornado that hit her hometown.

Greeneville, Tennessee natives Kimberly, Neil and Reid Perry (The Band Perry) visited their hometown earlier this week to help with tornado relief efforts. They joined the local Red Cross and the Greene County Disaster Relief/Donation Center to distribute food and supplies, offer solace, and express gratitude to the first responders and community volunteers.

The recent tornado also struck close to Chatom, Alabama, the hometown of Thompson Square’s Shawna Thompson. One of the hardest hit families in the area was the Box family of Deer Park, who lost three members. Thompson is auctioning off the dress she wore in the music video for the duo’s No. 1 hit, “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not” to benefit the family.
