During the last week, communities throughout eastern Tennessee have been inundated by wild fires, destroying hundreds of homes and displacing thousands of residents. At last estimate, seven people were killed and up to 45 people have been injured, as emergency responders seek to contain the blaze, which has been fueled by high winds and a drought.
As you know, our corporate partner, Morning Sun Financial Services of Tennessee, provides consumer-directed services throughout Tennessee. Our staff report the situation is very serious for the people we serve, our support brokers, and their neighbors. There is a tremendous need to get basic supplies ranging from hygiene supplies to water bottles and baby formula to families that have lost their homes, which our teams of Headwaters volunteers are preparing to do.
Our vendor, Marco Inc., has agreed to match every contribution dollar-for-dollar for Tennessee Wild Fire Relief up to $2,000. That means your gift will be doubled!
Contributions of any amount are welcome — $100 will provide two weeks of baby formula, $50 will buy toothbrushes for 20 kids, $25 will buy Gatorade for 10 people. Thanks to our corporate underwriters who support our administrative overhead, 100% of your gift goes to people in need.
