Response to the TN Floods
Monetary Donations, requested by aid organizations
As evidence of the loving hearts and giving spirits at Hilldale UMC, our office has received numerous calls asking for ways to assistant flood victims in Waverly, TN. We have been working diligently to find information, and we thank Nancy Leutert for coordinating conversations with Waverly UMC. Below you will find information that we have gathered to help the people of Humphreys County begin to start again.
At this time, MONETARY DONATIONS** are recommended. Most families have no place to store large amounts of clothing, furniture, etc. Waverly UMC has set up a "store" of sorts with all of those items, but right now they stress the need for monetary donations that will go to flood victims.
** Donations submitted below or mailed in with "Flood / Disaster Relief" in the memo line go 100% to Disaster Relief efforts resulting from the recent flooding. We send the donations on through the TN UMC Disaster Relief Team and Waverly United Methodist Church.
Checks can be dropped by the office or mailed to:
PO Box 3874
Clarksville, TN 37043
(put FLOOD or DISASTER RELIEF in the memo line)
YaiPak Clarksville is making multiple trips per week to Waverly. Any physical item donations can be dropped-off at their location on 2nd Avenue across from the Custom's House Museum (210 S. 2nd Street, Clarksville, TN 37040).
