Help For Flood Victims in TN

Ordinary Hero is collecting donations to give to flood victims that were hit hard this week. There are many people that lost everything due to flooding. I can honestly say I have never seen anything like this before in my life. These pictures I have posted don't even hold a candle to what downtown looks like. These are just in my neighborhood. I was trapped on all sides by water raging over the roads and could not get out. Fortunately, we live on a hill and were not affected, but there were thousands that were not so lucky.

I will be getting out tomorrow to see firsthand the damage in the inner city. I will post updates as to the families that we will be helping. There are people in need of clothes, food, under garments, all basic necessities as they try to start over. I also heard one specific need of a car for a family that is struggling. As you will see in the pictures, there were so many cars devoured by the flood waters. We are excepting money donations online as well as here locally in the form of donated items. Please contact Kelly@ordinaryhero.org if you are interested in donating particular items to these flood victims. I will tell you where to send them depending on if you are local or not.

  1. Praying for everyone that has been affected. Our church (Bethel World Outreach Center) is working with Samaritans Purse to help with the relief. For more information on how to get involved with them you can go here: www.bwoc.org/nashvillefloods
