The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee
The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee (CFMT) has activated the Tennessee Emergency Response Fund to help those impacted by Saturday’s heavy rains that flooded homes and roads in Humphreys, Dickson, Houston and Hickman counties. Gifts made to the Tennessee Emergency Response Fund will help families impacted by the severe storms and flooding. Grants will be made to nonprofits providing vital services both immediate and long term. CFMT’s work helps free nonprofits up to concentrate on delivering services while the organization “connects generosity with need” and our community sets out to rebuild lives.
American National Red Cross
The American Red Cross is assisting with four shelters — two in Waverly, one in Dickson and one in Centerville — and provides a disaster helpline. The organization also has an online registry where survivors can register and send messages about their well-being.
Community Resource Center
The Community Resource Center empowers their partner agencies to maintain their focus on providing critical services to Middle Tennessee's most vulnerable populations by relieving them of the burden of securing basic essential products. They have set up three donation drop off locations and established a list of items needed to support families. They have also established a crisis clean up line for people impacted by the flooding.
The Salvation Army
The Salvation Army Nashville is currently providing hydration support to first responders and survivors in Humphrey’s County where numerous homes were destroyed and over 5,000 remain without power.
