“We are working in coordination with the local Greyhound Station to offer a safe, warm place for anyone who is stranded and unable to return home due to the inclement weather currently affecting many cities across the Southeast,” said Joel Sullivan, Regional CEO.
The shelter will open at 4:00 p.m. and will be located at:
Mount Nebo Missionary Baptist Church2416 Clifton Road
Nashville, TN 37209
The shelter will offer meals, water, snacks, personal hygiene items, a cot and blankets as well as an opportunity to take a hot shower after many weary hours of travel in the frigid temperatures. All disaster assistance is free, made possible by voluntary donations of time and money from people in our community.
“The core of Red Cross disaster relief is the assistance given to individuals and families affected by disaster to enable them to resume their normal independent lives,” said Sullivan. “It is our job to be there for people when they need us, whether it is our neighbors here at home in Tennessee, or those who are on the road and trying desperately to get back home after a disaster.”
