We Love You, Tennessee
How You Can Help Our Tennessee Neighbors After the Tornado
After tornadoes ripped through Middle Tennessee in the early hours Tuesday morning (Mar 3, 2020), this week has been a very difficult one for our hometown of Nashville and the surrounding communities. We are standing with our Tennessee friends and neighbors during this time of rebuilding and have been amazed by and grateful for the outpouring of love we’ve seen from our listeners from here and around the world.
A lot of people have reached out wondering how they can help. During this time and over the weeks and months ahead, we encourage you to consider ways you can contribute your time, talents, and donations to the families and communities affected by the tornadoes. Feel free to visit wsmonline.com/relief for ideas about how you can get involved.
