Salvation Army Responds to Mandatory Evacuated Families in North Nashville

NASHVILLE, TN (August 8, 2013) – Currently The Salvation Army's Nashville Area Command and the American Red Cross are working together to relocate more than 300 people from the Parkwood Villa Apartment Complex, located at 3258 Brick Church Pike, to nearby shelters.

Flooded with nearly four feet of water from the heavy downpour that hit the area this morning, four units were severely damaged. Those buildings are currently without power and will have to be fully restored and deemed livable by the Metro Codes Department before the families can return home.

“We are working with the American Red Cross to provide food at their designated shelters for families displaced by the flood, said Jason Martin, Director of Marketing for The Salvation Army. “It is estimated that the families from Parkwood Villa will need shelter for three to 5 days.”

The Salvation Army Nashville Area Command will be providing meals and supplies to those affected by the flood and at shelters designated by the Red Cross. Doing the most good to the most people in the most need is the lifeline for The Salvation Army. The Nashville Area Command will remain in the area to lend a helping hand for as long as needed.
