United Way GCR’s partner agency, American Red Cross TN, and the Red Cross Executive Director, Pamela Holz, were quick to respond when devastating flooding hit Waverly, Tennessee on August 21, 2021. Calls for help were made and photos of the destruction were shared as affected families clambered to find respite and a place to stay.
To assist the American Red Cross TN in helping these families, United Way of the Greater Clarksville Region established a relief fund. Through our generous donors, $560 in total was collected! Additionally, our UW Showers of Love mobile shower unit was taken on a new voyage with YAIPak Outreach of Clarksville, Tennessee for a three week stay to assist the residents of Waverly with getting a much needed hot shower.
Many thanks goes out to the American Red Cross TN, our donors to the relief fund, as well as to YAIPak and their incredible team for the opportunity to serve the community through them!
