Most tornado recovery volunteer projects were paused when COVID-19 hit Middle Tennessee in March, even though there was still much work to be done. Now that we’re in Phase 3 of the Mayor’s Roadmap for Reopening Nashville, projects are resuming and volunteers are very much needed to continue the recovery process! This Saturday, June 27, is looking to be a big day of tornado recovery-related activities. Here’s a roundup of what’s available. We’ll add to this list as more activities become available.
- Shelby Park Golf Course cleanup: Volunteers in groups of 10 will fan out across the golf course, which was hit directly by the tornado, to clean up small debris.
- Canvassing tornado survivors in Donelson/Hermitage: Volunteers will go door to door to check on residents in tornado-affected areas to collect information on what services they still need.
- Canvassing tornado survivors in East Nashville: Volunteers will go door to door to check on residents in tornado-affected areas to collect information on what services they still need.
- Beautiful Black Joy Block Party and Tornado Recovery Event: Help with food distribution, sign-ins, case management support, debris/neighborhood cleanup and more during this celebration of North Nashville’s spirit.
If you are personally still in need of support stemming from the tornado, please call the Tornado Recovery Hotline at 615-270-9255.
