Middle Tennessee is suffering through another disaster following recent severe storms and flooding in Humphreys and surrounding counties. Several organizations are supporting impacted communities and the nonprofits helping survivors address their immediate and ongoing needs. Helping Hands, our community ministry has ways below that you can help!
A significant cleanup and recovery effort is underway in Humphreys County and many organizations and individuals are volunteering or providing volunteer personnel and resources for this effort. Individuals and organizations who want to volunteer should call (931) 888-8011 or (931) 888-8012, or go to the Dollar Tree, 505 W. Main St., in Waverly where many response agencies are located.
In times of disaster, financial donations are the best way to aid those in need. Cash can be used immediately in response to a crisis, and allows disaster relief organizations to purchase exactly what is needed, when it’s needed. Cash gives relief organizations the means to procure supplies near the affected area, which cuts down on transportation time and cost. Monetary contributions also support local economies and ensure that businesses can operate when relief supplies diminish.
