PUTNAM COUNTY, Tenn. — There's been such a huge outpouring of support to help victims of last week's tornadoes in the Cookeville area that officials are putting a hold on new supply donations.
In a press release that begins with a big 'thank you' to everyone who has helped, the Putnam County Emergency Operations Center is asking that no more supplies be delivered.
The EOC said they have literally received tractor-trailer loads of supplies, and at this point, they have been able to distribute needed items to all victims and are fully stocked with more.
That said if a group has already collected donations, they can still be delivered to the Cookeville Community Center by 4:30 p.m. CDT on Friday. They ask that you call Kayla 615-853-3975 to coordinate a bulk delivery.
They will post any further needs on their Facebook page.
While supply donations are not needed at this time, people who'd like to volunteer to help clean up or to feed first responders are still welcome. To be added to the feeding schedule, contact Katie at 931-267-9652.
