Although this has been an incredibly difficult time for all of us here in Middle Tennessee, the spirit of the people are strong and determined. Neighbors are helping neighbors, lives are being saved and broken spirits are being lifted by prayers from all over the world! The Salvation Army is fielding many, many calls from people excitedly letting us know that they want to help in any way possible and if there is anything they can donate to help those in need.
At this time, we are accepting monetary donations, which will allow for a faster response to the outlying areas severely affected by flooding. Credit card donations to support regional relief effort can be made online at www.salarmy-nashville.org, called in at 1-800-SAL-ARMY or checks/money can be mailed to The Salvation Army, PO Box 78625, Nashville, TN 37207.
We are also sending a request out for bottled water and cleaning kits complete with: Mops (portable handles), Brooms, Heavy Duty Work Gloves, Mask, Sponge, Squeegee, Scrub Brush, Plastic Gloves, Bleach, All-Purpose Cleaner Concentrate, Trash Bags, Paper Towels.
All items can be delivered to Nashville Area Command, 631 Dickerson Pike, Nashville, TN 37207
We will post volunteer opportunities soon to our website and via Facebook/Twitter as well as with Hands On Nashville.
Continue to stay safe and thanks to everyone who has donated to the efforts via monetary or the gift of time!!!
