Supporting Our Neighbors’ Recovery

Dec 12, 2023 | Blog

Helping communities respond, recover and rebuild.

We’ve rounded up resources from organizations and businesses offering support to Middle Tennesseans impacted by the recent storms. This is not an exhaustive list, but we hope that it helps our neighbors as they re-center and continue to seek local assistance — and that it’s helpful for community members that want to extend their support. United Way and the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee welcomes monetary donations for resources here. We thank everyone for your for generosity, time and efforts!

Know that you can call 211 or text your zip code to 898-211 at any time for help with community resources.
