Disaster Relief

How beautiful to see the people of God rise up and serve over the past weeks. In the aftermath of the tornado, relief needs continue in North Nashville. Many residents who typically scrape by financially lost food with the extended power outage and are losing work due to COVID-19. We are working to provide safe and helpful ways of continuing to serve the community. We are in this long-term!
 
Volunteers are needed to serve in the resource center, deliver meals, and check in on residents.
 
We continue to operate a resource center and provide meals to the local residents who are in need. Additionally, we are setting up teams to reach out to residents via phone to check in on them, see how they are doing, and how we can serve them and pray for them. Our goal is to build encouraging, long-term relationships as we meet their immediate needs, connect them to repair and rebuilding services, and help them move forward toward stability… all while taking precautions to avoid COVID-19 exposure for  everyone involved.
 

We are in need of the following items at the Resource Center:

Gallon Containers of Vegetables (for serving lunch)
Styrofoam Divided Containers
Packaged Silverware/Napkin Combo
Empty Spray Bottles
Antibacterial Soap
Hand Sanitizer
Laundry Soap
Dish Liquid
Pull Ups (sizes 5 & up)
Clorox Wipes

Volunteers are a vital part of what we do. We can’t do what we do without YOU. We are continuing to operate but we have had to make some adjustments. We are pursuing creative ways that you can continue to be involved and we will be in touch soon. Here are some changes to our current activities and we are hopeful that we will be able to be all together soon.
 

• All educational programming has been moved online.

• The Madison staff are available by appointment. Most meetings will be done through video conference or telephone.

• The Woodbine site is operating remotely but checking in with clients and meeting via conference or telephone.

• The tornado recovery continues in North Nashville as PCN coordinates with organizations to help with the rebuilding. The site continues to operate with limited hours and strict sanitary guidelines of how to serve the community safely while still providing food and resources to the elderly and vulnerable and connecting residents to re-build and repair opportunities.

Employees are working remotely to continue to meet the needs of clients and to walk alongside them. PCN is also working to implement solutions for online programming for the community so that the work may continue.
