The Nashville Area Habitat for Humanityis actively involved in the rebuilding of homes and lives for families and individuals in the Nashville communities. In the aftermath of natural disasters – including floods – the Nashville Area Habitat for Humanity becomes an even more important facet in helping those who have lost their homes rebuild and re-locate into a new one.
The Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee’s facility was one of many buildings that were in the direct line of the flood. Currently without electricity, the staff continues to salvage as much of their previously stored food as possible as they simultaneously seek a new location.
Country Angel’s Network hosts annual online auction events, as well as fundraiser campaigns throughout the year! For additional information on Country Angel’s Networkauctions and updates on all past beneficiaries, please visitwww.countryangelsnetwork.org.
