It’s been two years since the historic flood that devastated Nashville and Middle Tennessee, but blessings continue to come from the disaster. Our partner agency, The Ark Community Resource and Assistance Center, got one this week. The Ark has a variety of programs serving those in need in south Cheatham County. They operate a weekly food pantry, meals on wheels senior dining, offer emergency utility and rent assistance, referral services, clothing/household goods give-a-ways and a slew of other things. The agency was an active player after the flood in helping survivors put their lives back together.
Well, good things happen to good people. The Kharis Foundation has awarded The Ark Community Resource and Assistance Center, Inc. with a $100,000.00 grant to purchase a new building. The foundation helped with funds for case management after the flood and that connection led to the grant.
If you’re in south Cheatham County, take a look at their blog and try to lend a hand any way you can.
