Mountain Tough
Mountain Tough is an organization in Sevier County, Tennessee that coordinates donations, community resources, and more for wildfire survivors.

Give
In times of disaster, financial donations are the best way to aid those in need. Cash can be used immediately in response to a crisis, and allows disaster relief organizations to purchase exactly what is needed, when it’s needed. Cash gives relief organizations the means to procure supplies near the affected area, which cuts down on transportation time and cost. Monetary contributions also support local economies and ensure that businesses can operate when relief supplies diminish.

Information on how to give monetary donations can be found at mountaintough.org/give/

Volunteer
Information about how to volunteer will be shared when it is available.
