Nashville Disaster Relief — #NashvilleStrong


Nashville is in the process of grappling with two devastating events — the March 3 tornado and the outbreak of COVID-19. Each disaster has complicated the response to the other. Hands On Nashville is working closely with the City of Nashville, the Office of Emergency Management, and local health officials to support 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 weeks. 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.


Volunteer to help with Disaster Relief



Give money, donate items, and share resources with those who need them

Alert us to a disaster-relief volunteer need in the community

If you are with a group that is organizing volunteer efforts on your own and you do not need additional volunteers, please know every volunteer counts in disaster recovery. Now that the March 3 tornado is a federally declared disaster, our city will need to report out on the tremendous volunteer response we have received in order to access federal recovery dollars. Click here to access a sign-in sheet you can use at your project, which you can scan in or photograph and email to hon@hon.org.
