“United Way of Humphreys County has been dedicated to our communities for years, and we established the Humphreys County Flood Relief Fund to get immediate and long-term needs met for all the flood victims,” notes Executive Director Nioka Curtis. “We had no idea this would be one of the worst floods in our history, but our community will be whole again. It’s UWHC’s goal to help make that happen as quickly as possible with the help of our generous donors. From the rental deposits and down payments necessary for people to get re-housed, to remodeling, replacing clothing and rebuilding their lives, we want to make sure their needs are met and we will continue our fight to make that happen.”
The recent flooding ripped through parts of Middle Tennessee on Saturday, August 17, leaving 20 people dead and destroying hundreds of homes. The flood hit close to home from Lynn has it tore through her ranch and sadly took the life of her longtime ranch foreman, Wayne Spears. People in the area are in desperate need as they continue to put their lives back together after the devastation.
