Donations sought to help recovery from Metro flood

Friday, May 7, 2010

A truck was expected to leave Lewisburg today with supplies to help the Nashville flood victims, and another will go next week.

Nashville Mayor Carl Dean stresses that his city needs large quantities of generators, diapers, bottled water, baby formula, cleaning supplies, rubber gloves, wet-vacs, brooms, and mops.

Marshall County residents have been asked to take donations to Lewisburg's Rec Center on Mooresville Highway, or to WAXO on West Commerce Street, according to Carol Foreman, a volunteer coordinator with the effort.

A need for all these items will continue for several weeks, she said. Meanwhile, flood waters are receding and clean-up has begun in more areas of Davidson County.
