Monroe Residents Help Nashville Flood Victims

Monroe Residents Help Nashville Flood Victims
Earlier this year, much of the Nashville, Tennessee area was flooded after nearly 20 inches of rain over the course of two days, resulting in property damage throughout the area and even the loss of several lives. According to Mayor Karl Dean, damages throughout the area will so far cost around $1.5 billion, and those numbers are expected to climb. People from all over the country are offering whatever they can do to help the devastated area and that includes the people of Monroe.

Next weekend, on Sunday May 15, the Monroe Hornets Football Team, together with the First Baptist Church of Monroe youth will be collecting clothes, shoes, etc., for flood victims. The event will last from noon to 3:00 PM.

There are two drop-off locations in the community. The first one is at Monroe High School and the other is at the First Baptist Church of Monroe. Football team members and members of the First Baptist Church and First Baptist Cur ch youth will be on hand to take any and all donations.

In addition to clothing items, monetary donations are also welcome to help pay for shipping the items to the Nashville flood victims. All checks must be made payable to the First Baptist Church of Monroe. For more information, check out Faith, Football, and the Flood.
