Help Our Neighbors

Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone effected by the storms in Nashville early morning last night.


As the volunteer state, we are all wondering how we can help. We’ve created a collection of resources on how you can help those in need or get help for yourself or those effected.


  1. Please be careful and stay safe. Please stay off the roads in effected area and let first responders do their jobs.
  2. If your power is out, report is to NES Power.
    1. Text “OUT” from your mobile device
      Quickly report a power outage by texting “OUT” to 637797 (NESPWR). Customers who have not signed up for interactive text messaging with NES can register here.
    2. Call 615-234-0000
      You will need the NES account number, meter number or phone number associated with your account for the system to recognize your outage.


Hands on Nashville – Volunteer Opportunities

Hands On Nashville is working closely with the City of Nashville and the Office of Emergency Management to ensure all of the available resources are in place to help our community in the wake of last night’s destructive tornados, power outages, road closures throughout Davidson and surrounding counties. The city has emergency response personnel assessing the situation and repairing damage has already begun.

Those interested in volunteering can express interest at the button below. As individual cleanup projects are identified, they will be added to this site. We will share news and updates with you as soon as we know more.
