Middle Tennessee Severe Weather Response Information
To find information about donating or volunteering for Middle Tennessee severe weather relief, please visit our Disaster Services page and Tennessee Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) https://www.tnvoad.org/.
DO NOT collect or send donated items unless there is a specific request for those items from a responding agency. In most cases, cash donations are the best and most effective way to help people impacted by disasters.
DO NOT SELF-DEPLOY to volunteer in the affected area. You should only travel to volunteer as part of an officially deployed volunteer team.
The mission of Volunteer Tennessee is to encourage volunteerism and community service. Volunteer Tennessee is the 25-member bipartisan citizen board appointed by the Governor to oversee AmeriCorps programs, manage the Tennessee Serves Network, promote service-learning opportunities and foster community service initiatives and partnerships in which people of all ages and backgrounds engage in addressing the educational, public safety, environmental and other human needs in the Volunteer State.
