HOW CAN YOU HELP?
1. SEND MONETARY DONATIONS. Our Knox County and Tennessee DR units need to be ready to go as soon as they get the word. They will need supplies and gas. They will be prepared to deploy perhaps as early as this weekend. For the greatest efficiency, they can purchase specific items that their unit will be called to provide. Depending on where they are assigned they might be providing a Feeding Unit, a Laundry/Shower trailer, a Flood Recovery response or a Chain Saw/Debris Clearing crew. Each of these will require different resources to operate. Sometimes people would rather send something tangible rather than money, however, cash donations allow us to purchase materials near the disaster area, which stimulates the local economy that has suffered. It also does not have to be warehoused or shipped, which often costs almost as much as the gift. You can send your donations for KCAB DR to P.O. Box 11028, Knoxville TN 37939 (indicate DR on the check or you can come to our office 7709 Westland Dr. weekdays 9–5:00. The needs will be ongoing for some time.
