Tennessee Flood Victims Need Your Help

Posted: Updated:

With waters finally receding, those affected by the floods in Tennessee need your help now to begin repairing and rebuilding their lives. Thousands have seen their homes and businesses flooded. According to Nashville Mayor Karl Dean, "I think it's safe to say that the damage we're looking at will easily exceed $1 billion."

Thousands in the Nashville area need your help. The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee has two funds you can support to directly help those affected by the floods:

Flood Relief - Metro Nashville Disaster Response Fund

"In partnership with Davidson County's Office of Emergency Management, The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee has activated its Metro Nashville Disaster Response Fund to help to those affected by the May 1, 2010 floods. Donations of any size are welcome. Grants from the fund will support relief and restoration in the Davidson County area."
