Those who can’t bring water and food and physically make sure people are okay, that they have the opportunity to help.”

Nashville is a resilient city and there is no doubt that collectively, we as a city, state, and country can help rebuild what we’ve lost.” Thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the devastating tornado.
