Nashville, TN – In the aftermath of a deadly tornado outbreak in the city of Nashville and across middle Tennessee, The Salvation Army is mobilizing disaster relief teams from across its Kentucky and Tennessee Division to help those in need. As day three of serving begins, The Salvation Army is calling in additional support. Mobile Kitchen units and personnel from Memphis and Chattanooga, TN and from Paducah and Louisville, KY will arrive today.
To date, The Salvation Army has served over 1000 meals and has provided over 400 individuals with emotional and spiritual care in Davidson, Wilson, and Putnam Counties in Tennessee. “The Salvation Army’s privilege of serving neighbors and helping neighbors is humbling,” states Salvation Army Nashville Area Commander, Major Ethan Frizzell. “As the strength of the community rises, The Salvation Army is privileged to be a small part of continuing our long-term support including emotional and spiritual care on the front lines and feeding those affected throughout Middle Tennessee.”
Today, March 5th, The Salvation Army will have mobile kitchen units and Emotional and Spiritual Care teams in Putnam, Davidson and Wilson Counties, particularly North Nashville around fire hall station #11 along 17th Street and Buchannan Street, Hermitage Area, Lebanon, and Cookeville areas.
Your support will help The Salvation Army stay on the front lines of this crisis and enable us to provide food, water and other disaster relief services to tornado survivors and rescue workers.
