Thank you for Visiting Nashville Resource Connect
The purpose of this outlet is to provide an informative platform for people to get involved with the tornado disaster relief. This outlet will include long term volunteer, donation, and fundraising opportunities for victims and friends of the 2020 Tornado in Nashville, TN and surrounding areas.
Our mission is to provide assistance, resources and media coverage to predominantly black neighborhoods, underprivileged victims and black owned businesses that were directly affected by the tornado and its aftermath.
Many of our neighborhoods will need our help in these coming months. This is our time to come together! #tennesseestrong #nashvillestrong #blacknashvillestrong

How to Help Businesses That Were Affected
