With the tornadoes and the virus coming in quick succession, it's been an unusual chapter in Nashville. But as a community, we know we will emerge from this stronger than ever.
Whether you or someone you know needs help, or you are looking for ways to help, we have you covered.
COVID-19 Response Fund
Housed at United Way of Greater Nashville and chaired by former Senator Dr. Bill Frist, the COVID-19 Response Fund was created to assist individuals and families experiencing financial hardship due to this virus. The fund will focus its initial allocations on helping our neighbors who are experiencing lost wages or who become ill from the virus. Side-by-side with the Mayor's Office, United Way and the Response Committee will work to get these dollars into Greater Nashville quickly—funding nonprofit partners and service providers working directly with those disproportionately impacted by this challenging landscape.
With recent tornadoes and the COVID-19 threat, more people are realizing just how many local kids rely on schools' free and reduced-price breakfasts and lunches. One of Second Harvest's core duties is working with schools to provide food for these kids outside of school hours without stigmatizing them.
If you have non-perishable food items you would like to donate, you can drop them in the Second Harvest Food Bank donation barrels in the front of your local Kroger store, or bring them to our distribution center at 331 Great Circle Road, Nashville, TN 37228.
From April 6-17, the Titans and our local sports teams are participating in a virtual food drive to see which fan base can donate the most to help those in need.
