TWO WAYS TO HELP:
    1) Donate funds:
                    Southern Baptists operate one of the largest and most well-respected private disaster relief networks in the world.  Teams of trained and credentialed volunteers from SBC churches are either on the ground or enroute to areas affected by Harvey.
 
 
Donations by check:

Send your check, made payable to the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board, to:

TN Baptist Disaster Relief 
PO Box 682789
Franklin, TN 37068

IMPORTANT: On the memo line, write "Hurricane/Flood Relief Fund." Any checks received that do not have a designation will be used for General Disaster Relief.

 
 
     2) Donate supplies:
                        Thanks to everyone who donated to our collection for victims of Hurricane Harvey. We are anticipating another collection drive to assist victims of Hurricane Irma just as soon as we hear from our partners about what they need. In the meantime, you can use the list below as a guide for assembling items to donate. Check this page regularly for updates on when and where we will be collecting items.

Create and donate a "flood bucket"!
For about $50, you can create a bucket containing many of the basic supplies a disaster relief team needs to begin cleaning out a flooded house. If carefully packed, all these items will fit into a 5-gallon bucket. Please place liquids into a gallon-sized ziplock bag before packing to avoid spillage. Here's what the teams need in each bucket:
