As the pandemic impacted the local economy, people already struggling from the natural disaster had more challenges to contend with. Even a month after the storms, people we’re still filing claims seeking support for recovery.
As of April 17, people impacted by these March 3 tornadoes had filed more than 15,000 claims of more than $1.1 billion, according to an article on Tennessean. Just days earlier, on April 12, another string of tornadoes had swept across southern areas of the state causing more devastating damage.
Thank you for your support of our programs as we respond to disasters within the pandemic. Everyone is just one disaster away from poverty, and your support makes a big difference during this difficult time in individuals' lives.
"You are awesome"- Mary, at the Community Resource Center of Nashville, speaking of the goods en route to Nashville, thanks to you!
Diapers, baby bottles, adult care essentials and more are arriving today to help with immediate needs. I cannot thank you enough for your quick support which makes the work we do possible.
We know in disaster relief, the need is great immediately and also long after the disaster is over. Families have been uprooted, jobs lost and the impact will linger on. We're excited to be able to work with the Community Resource Center-Nashville both now, and into the future.
We've only sent the specific items requested- thus meeting their needs and not clogging their space with unneccessary items. As more needs arise, we will respond with future shipments of goods to help rebuild.
