I thought it would be fitting for us to remember and pray for those in Tennessee and other areas where there has been massive flooding recently. There hasn’t been alot of media coverage of this and now is as good a day as any to highlight it.
Thanks to Noel Sheppard from Newsbusters.org for providing links to the following charities where we can help:
I’m currently trying to locate charitable organizations doing storm relief. One is the Middle Tennessee Red Cross.
Also, WSMV-TV is doing a telethon Thursday evening, May 6, featuring Vince Gill, Keith Urban, Alison Krauss, Naomi Judd, Darius Rucker, Phil Vassar, Steve Wariner, Buddy Jewell, Lonestar, Bo Bice and Lee Roy Parnell.
Another option just sent to me by a reader is the Tennessee Emergency Relief Fund at www.CFMT.org online or 888-540-5200.
For those near the area or looking to head there to help out, Hands On Nashville has a listing of volunteer events.
Here’s an extensive list of organizations helping with the crisis from WKRN-TV.
Note: I made the mistake of making this an open thread. I apologize and have changed it. Please do not use this thread as a reason to complain about the National Day of Prayer, Christianity, or the like. If you have something meaningful to say, please, by all means comment. I simply ask that you be respectful of others who consider this day to be significant.
