Ways To Help

Spring means storm season around Tennessee! We’ve already seen tornado warnings and flash flood warnings.

 

The pictures of destruction around the area are astounding. Waters may have receded, but the damage is done. As our community begins to clean up, they need our help!

 

 

We are resilient. We will recover. We are Tennessee Strong.

 

Here are some ways to help:

Community Resource Center Nashville (CRC) is collecting items to help with flood recovery. CRC needs flashlights, batteries, rakes, tarps, tents, shovels, sleeping bags, small snack foods (individually wrapped) and sports drinks.

 

CRC can only accept new items, which can be dropped off in bins in front of its South Nashville location at 218 Omohundro Place. Click here to visit CRC’s Amazon wish list.

Hands On Nashville, along with the Nashville Office of Emergency Management (OEM), is seeking reliable volunteers to help with relief and recovery efforts. 

Volunteer Leader tasks may include (but may not be limited to):   

  • Helping set up and organize work stations, registration tables, tools, supplies, etc. 
  • Providing volunteer leadership and supervision at projects 
  • Assisting with volunteer registration, check-in, and data collection  
  • Ensuring volunteers are safe and projects get done  
  • Reporting back to HON with needs, updates, issues, etc.
