Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are rallying to help their neighbors clean up and provide emergency relief supplies in the wake of a half dozen tornadoes that swept through northern Tennessee on Saturday, December 9, 2023, killing six people.
Around 300 volunteers are working with the United Way to assist with the cleanup efforts beginning Thursday, December 14.
The Church of Jesus Christ is also sending generators, gas cans and extension cords to the affected areas. These supplies will help restore power to many homes, providing heat during the current winter temperatures.
Stratie Young, a regional leader of the Church from Hopkinsville, Kentucky, is grateful for the efforts already being made. “I consider myself blessed to be part of a community that loves and supports one another in times of turmoil and distress. It is a real time application of being willing to follow Jesus Christ, and bear one another’s burden that they may be light, mourn with those who mourn and comfort those that stand in need of comfort.”
