Letter from Northeast Tennessee Executive Director, Kalen Collins - June 2019
As you know, March brought rain, rain, and more rain, but our team was ready to respond. Local volunteers sprang into action by opening five shelters and completing damage assessment in the affected areas. A team of volunteers including Naif Almutairi, Marth Farmer, Larry Nelson, Rachelle Burkert, Lynn Wright, Teresa Rhoton, Edith White deployed to Linden and Nashville, Tennessee to help our Red Cross neighbors. We operated as a cohesive unit to respond to the Tennessee Region’s flooding.
