The demand for a free breakfast at Southport Presbyterian was light, as those in need of a meal following Saturday's blast in the Richmond Hill neighborhood on Indy's south side.

Listen:

Still, volunteers were ready to lend a helping hand to blast victims even if there isn't a great need.  Ron McAhron is helping to organize some of the volunteer efforts through Southport Presbyterian Church and says there are a lot of lessons to be learned in this, some bigger lessons than he anticipated, like the importance of community.

McAhron says disasters like the one that happened over the weekend also spurs the church to help out with other emergencies. They're now putting together a tornado plan at the church, as well.
