Deep in the Heart of Nashville

NASHVILLE, TN, Sept. 6, 2005 -- The Steve McNair Foundation coordinated a massive relief effort at the Coliseum on Tuesday, loading more than 20 trucks full of donated items ranging from food, clothing and other supplies to send to hurricane victims along Mississippi's Gulf Coast in McNair's home state.

One word to describe the Nashville community's response to the Hurricane Relief Drive: Overwhelming.

Also Liz Garrigan from the Nashville Scene celebrates what we all love about how Nashville Responds

"... churches, businesses and neighborhood groups are all scurrying to organize food drives, blood drives, clothing drives. People are gathering luggage, Band-Aids, diapers, whatever they can think of. It’s clear that Nashville is as flooded with goodwill as New Orleans is with biohazardous, disease-carrying water."
