How To Help

Tennessee Disaster Relief

On December 10 and 11, catastrophic storms swept through much of Northwest Tennessee. It is so important that we Unite together to help those in the greatest need. The United Way network is working with emergency management, disaster partners and local communities to support services for families affected. At this time, monetary donations are needed to support immediate needs and long-term recovery for impacted communities, particularly those in Dyer/Lake, Gibson, Weakley, and other surrounding counties. Help support our neighbors in West TN by donating today. Each link below will direct you to each county's campaign page.
