Floods Ravage TN ~ Convoy of Hope is there to Help

Well you know me…It’s all about the Cause!

If it’s not getting shoes for kids who have none…it’s all about Convoy of Hope!

…and yes, this is all about Convoy of Hope in Tennessee after  debilitating flooding they endured this week.

Four Convoy of Hope tractor-trailers filled with food and water arrived in Nashville, Tenn., yesterday [May 5, 2010] where floods from recent rains killed several people and caused tens of millions of dollars worth of damage.

You can help.

“This disaster warrants immediate response and support,” says Kary Kingsland, vice president of disaster response for Convoy of Hope. “We are working with several organizations, churches and government agencies to ensure our food and supplies reach those who need them most.”

According to Kingsland, Convoy of Hope will have four mobile distribution sites up and running by this evening. From those sites, teams will take food, water and supplies door-to-door in communities in and around Nashville that were flooded.

Your secure online donation can help these communities recover.

Earlier this week assessment teams from Convoy of Hope were in Tennessee to discern how the organization could most effectively help flooding victims.

To start, Convoy of Hope will be working in Goodlettsville, Madison and Bellevue.

“We’re equipping volunteers with the tools and supplies they need to help those families whose homes and businesses were flooded,” adds Kingsland.
