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.

If you are personally still in need of support stemming from the tornado, please call the Tornado Recovery Hotline at 615-270-9255.

Anderson Design Group is donating 50 percent of its profits from the 2020 Tornado Relief posters to The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee and Hands On Nashville for the month of March. The team at Anderson Design Group writes:

“We are heartbroken at the devastation and ask that you please donate, help out, pray for, and think of our neighbors in Germantown, North Nashville, East Nashville, Donelson, Mt. Juliet, and Lebanon. We are so proud to be Nashvillians and to live and work in a community that lifts each other up. We will stand alongside one another to get through this disaster like we’ve done so many times before. We love you, Nashville!”

Hands On Nashville loves the city and Anderson Design Group, too. We’re honored by the group’s generosity and grateful to share the news of Anderson Design Group’s generosity.

The 2020 Tornado Relief series features eight different poster designs. Two of these designs are brand new. Anderson Design Group founder Joel Anderson began sketching the concepts the moment he turned on the news and saw the first images of devastation. These new designs depict a broken guitar rising from the rubble with a branch of fresh new growth sprouting from the shattered guitar neck. Staff artist Aaron Johnson rendered Joel’s sketch concept to depict green leaves and a flower springing to life from the debris, symbolizing the hope, grit and beauty that is always present among neighbors in the Volunteer State when adversity strikes. There is a Spirit of Nashville version and a Spirit of Tennessee version.

For each of these special Tornado Victim Fund-Raising Designs, you can purchase prints, canvases, canvas banners, and metal signs of varying sizes as well as individual and framed postcards and sets of notecards.
