Opportunity Details

Canvassing in East Nashville - Social Distancing Friendly #NashvilleTornado

Volunteers are needed to go door to door to check in with those affected by the tornado and gather information for agencies that can support them. 

Volunteers will meet in three outdoor locations (please sign up for your preferred location below) for socially distanced training (approx. 30 minutes) and then will be fanning out into neighborhoods to walk around, knock on doors, speak to survivors, and collect information on their phones. Volunteers will go out in teams of two and will never be alone with a homeowner. 

Please wear comfortable walking shoes and bring water, sunscreen, and maybe a hat and umbrella. You can bring your own PPE: mask, gloves, etc, and we'll also have some available. Canvassing will take place rain or shine. 

In accordance with Mayor John Cooper’s Roadmap for Reopening Nashville, Hands On Nashville recommends the following guidelines for volunteering:   
  • Individuals belonging to the following groups should not volunteer for in-person opportunities: ages 65 and up, those with elevated health risk or compromised immune systems, anyone who is feeling unwell (or who has been exposed to/is caring for someone who is sick or has a compromised immune system).  
  • Volunteers who attend projects should take recommended precautions, including maintaining distances between themselves and other people; practicing hand-washing and sanitation of spaces; wearing gloves, masks, and other protective gear; etc. As always, consult a medical professional should you begin to feel unwell at any point during or after a project.  
If you decide not to attend a project, please log in to and remove yourself from the opportunity ahead of time so that another volunteer may have a chance to fill your slot. If you have any trouble with this, email and we’ll be happy to help!  
Please be aware that your project may be canceled with short notice. Projects are subject to change depending on shifting guidelines and circumstances. We appreciate your understanding.
