The Salvation Army Responds to December 9th Tornadoes


[Nashville, TN] (December 10, 2023) – The Salvation Army is preparing to respond to the areas affected by the tornadoes that hit our community on December 9, 2023, in Middle Tennessee. Currently, we are assessing areas that have been hit and will begin snack and hydration service alongside emotional and spiritual care later today in the Madison and Clarksville communities.

“At this time, our team is gearing up to go out into the community to provide food and emotional and spiritual care to our neighbors. We expect our response to increase in other areas as they are further evaluated and the level of need across the entire area becomes known. As always, our response will continue until the need of our neighbors is met,” Captain Philip Canning, Incident Commander for The Salvation Army in Nashville.

If the community would like to help, monetary donations are the most effective way to allow us to gather the resources needed to best assist our community. 100% of donations given for this disaster will be used to fund our emergency response and recovery efforts for this disaster.

You can financially support our response efforts through the following channels:
