Waverly Flood Update

 

Waverly Update

Some individuals and churches in our area have called and asked what they can do to assist with the needs in the tragic flooding that has happened in the Waverly, Dixon, McEwen Tennessee area. From what our Disaster Relief team has seen this week, several thousand people have been affected by the flood and 500-600 homes have been destroyed or damaged severely. The need is very great. I learned from local officials and from our TBMB Disaster Relief Staff that the best way to help at this time is for individuals, churches, and businesses to give cash donations in the form of checks, cash, and/or gift cards. At this time, the area has been overwhelmed with other donations such as clothes, supplies, food, water, and other items.

So, I am encouraging our DBA churches to send or drop by any checks/cash/gift card donations to the DBA office.  You can also use the online giving link in Wes Jones’ message below.  Wes is the TBMB Director of Disaster Relief. 

Please make sure any checks brought to the DBA office are made out to the DBA and in the memo line of the check write “Tennessee Flood.”  I will personally see that they are taken to Waverly.

 

From Wes Jones’ letter to DOM’s: 

EMERGENCY DONATIONS FOR DISASTER RESPONSE

Many individuals and churches have called and asked what they can do to assist with the needs in the tragic flooding that has happened in the Waverly, Dixon, McEwen areas of TN.  Below is my suggestions for those who would like to help. Cash and gift cards are the best way to help.

Donate at http://tndisasterrelief.org/contributions/ or mailed to Tennessee Baptist Mission Board, PO Box 682789, Franklin, TN 37068 earmarked for “Tennessee Flood Relief”. Gift cards can be sent to the Missions Mobilization Center, 6434 John Hagar Rd., Mount Juliet, TN 37122. These are much easier to use to meet specific needs of a family.

Any questions should be directed to the MMC at 615-371-7926. Or email us at drelief@tnbaptist.org , wjones@tnbaptist.org , or eholmes@tnbaptist.org

Reminder:

Financial Contributions (Checks, Cash, or Gift Cards) can also be sent to the DBA office or dropped off during the following hours:  Monday through Thursday, 8:30 am – 4:00 pm.  Please make checks payable to the DBA and write in the memo “Tennessee Flood”.
