Early in May of this year
torrential rains caused massive flooding in the Nashville
area. The Long Term Recovery Committee (LTRC) is now
moving forward with receiving volunteer work groups to assist
with repairing homes in the Nashville area. We are
grateful to the Brookmeade UCC for their willingness to
provide housing for work groups; additionally, we have access
to other housing if Brookmeade is not available in the week a
group would like to come and work. Pam Small of
Evansville, IN has agreed to serve as our long term volunteer
coordinator (thanks Pam) to register UCC groups.
This is a major effort and
currently the Nashville LTRC plans to be at work at least
until August 2012. Below is a link to the UCC site that
includes information about the floods; and registration
information. More than 2,000 families and individuals
are in need of assistance to be back in their homes.
Please share this information
throughout your Conference.
