If there’s one thing we’ve learned this year, it’s that Nashville is STRONG! We’ve faced tornadoes, COVID, rioting and now the aftermath of the Christmas bombing. Time after time, Music City comes together! Here are some ways that we can all work together to help our beloved city.
The Community Resource Center is tirelessly working to support neighbors affected by the explosion in addition to first responders! If you’d like to donate financially, you can do that here or they also have a need for the donations of the items below.
In the wake of an explosion in downtown Nashville early Friday morning that injured several people, damaged multiple buildings and caused an evacuation of the riverfront area, The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee (CFMT) has established the Nashville Neighbors Fund, in partnership with WTVF-NewsChannel5, to support those impacted from the Christmas morning catastrophe that shook the area and was felt for miles. Grants from the Fund will be made to nonprofits providing services for both the immediate and long-term needs arising from the explosion, which city officials termed “intentional.” Make a donation here.
Help provide warm winter gear for our homeless neighbors. Shower Up is in need of warm blankets/sleeping bags, gloves, hats, scarves, toiletry items and much more. Find out ways to help and give here.
