An Overnight Disaster

On the night of March 2, 2020, Tennesseans in Nashville were visited by severe storms and tornadoes which ripped through the state overnight. The overnight disaster injured scores of people and damaged or destroyed homes, businesses, schools and churches across four counties.

Days after, affected towns with more than 70,000 residents remain to have power outages. Multiple households are also left displaced looking for shelter and daily supplies.

Feeding Hope

Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee has been active since the dawn of the disaster in their state with more than 100,000 meals already given out to affected neighbors in Tennessee. The organization provides a central distribution center for donors of any type who wish to help provide food for hungry people in Middle Tennessee.

With more rain showers expected to come in the next few days in the state of Tennessee, recovery will slow down for most of the affected families; thus, Second Harvest is continuously gathering resources and emergency supplies for Nashville residents:

• Food and drinking water for those seeking shelter at the Centennial Sportsplex.

• Supporting Red Cross with 1,600 hot meals per day for their Disaster Mobile Response Units.

• Other areas being supported with food: Edgefield Manor, Cumberland View Apartments, Cheatham Place Apartments, Preston Taylor Homes, Andrew Jackson Courts, and Sam Levy Homes.

With a lot of people hurting, an equal number (or even more) of people want to help but don’t know what to do or how to get to those who were affected. Airfunding is with all of you and with the people of Nashville as we work together to get the help they need.

We are inviting all members of the Airfunding global community to join us as we help rebuild Nashville together. Funds collected in this project will be directly donated to Second Harvest to keep their food supplies stocked for the people of Nashville.

If you are nearby, you may also drop off non-perishable food items at 331 Great Circle Road, Nashville, TN 37228.
