The recent Tennessee floods have left many people without the necessary resources they need.  One Ohio County family is rallying the troops to help out and you can too.

The Patterson family from Ohio County holds the town of Waverly, Tennessee very near and dear to their heart and when the floods destroyed it they decided they wanted to help out.  Matilda's husband and son travel to Loretta Lynn's Ranch twice a year to ride dirt bikes.

Angel here and Matilda Patterson sent me a message asking if we could help her spread the word about the collection of items for the trip.

Here's a list of items they are seeking;

  • feminine hygiene products
  • baby supplies
  • cleaning supplies
  • animal shelter needs like dog/cat food, large crates
  • clorox products

Matilda had this to say if would like to help out in other ways;

We plan on making the trip to Waverly/Hurricane Mills TN this Saturday.
I can meet anyone that would be willing to donate or you can leave them at my parents office! Every little bit helps!
Also if anyone has any connections to get cases of water that would help tremendously.
You can message me or Whitney Wolfe. Also if you would just like for us to shop we have PayPal, cashapp and Venmo.
You can message me on messenger or text 270-363-9199.
They do ask if you have not already organized efforts to help flooding victims with a local church or resource center to please contact one that is already doing so.  This keeps unwanted traffic out of these areas.    Here are the local churches and organizations working together through the Nashville Community Resource Center.
