Volunteers support critical relief efforts


Nashville is in the process of grappling with two devastating events — the March 3 tornado and the outbreak of COVID-19. Hands On Nashville is working closely with the City of Nashville, the Office of Emergency Management, and local health officials to support ongoing tornado and COVID-19 relief efforts through volunteerism. We are so grateful for the outpouring of support and generosity this community has shown these past several months. There's more work to be done, and we are working with officials and community partners to ensure that work can be done as safely as possible.
