The sites will help families who have been impacted by the storms.

They are accepting a wide range of supplies including bottled water, rakes, shovels, work gloves and garbage bags.

Jill Levine tells us “We’re just a generous community. And the toughest times often brings out the best in people. So we are just grateful that the people are willing to help and support. And we just want to get the support that we have to those in need as soon as possible.”

Donations can be made at Hixson Middle School Friday from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.
