This past week has been a difficult one for the Greater Nashville area. In the early morning of March 3, areas across the city that Project Play Therapy calls its home were devastated by a tornado. We were grateful to the first responders, who helped to keep the children and families we serve safe, and we were incredibly thankful that our staff were all accounted for.
Nashville is a strong city that has a long history of helping recovery efforts after tragedy, with Tennessee being known as “The Volunteer State”. It was amazing and humbling to see our staff come together to support those who need it most over the past week. Project Play’s team is so compassionate and caring – so it was no surprise that they jumped right in to help in the recovery efforts.
Project Play staff raised over $3,000, used to donate critical supplies to hardest hit areas. And 25 volunteers from Project Play volunteered in North Nashville doing everything from debris clean up to supply delivery. While there will be much more work to do, Project Play is committed to helping our city recover and rebuild.
To those in the hardest hit areas, our hearts go out to you. To find out how you can help in tornado recovery relief efforts contact: Hands on Nashville and The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
