Letter from Mid-West Tennessee Executive Director, Debra Roberson - February 2016

The Mid-West Tennessee Chapter is officially moved to our new location at 19 Stonecreek Circle in Jackson. Several of our volunteers worked very hard to make this move happen in just a few days. I greatly appreciate each of them and could not have done it without them. I hope that everyone will take time to stop by and visit us at the new office.

The Mid-West volunteers had another call to action earlier this month.  A tornado touched down in Alamo, TN leaving a huge impact on the community. Some homes received minor damage, yet others were a total loss. Once again, our great volunteers were on the scene quickly providing meals, snacks, water and clean up supplies to these families.  The High School received major damage and meals were also served to the workers who were assisting at the school. Crockett County Mayor, Gary Reasons, expressed his sincere appreciation for the Red Cross and the services we provide.

We continue to participate in the Home Fire Campaign to educate people about fire safety and install smoke alarms in homes that need them. There are future events scheduled and we want to invite you to join us as we go out into the areas of greatest need to install smoke alarms. You may call our office at 731-427-5543 for additional information.

As always, thank you for your support of the Mid-West TN Chapter. I want to wish everyone a “Happy Valentine’s Day” on February 14th.

Debra Roberson

Executive Director
