Decatur Team Extends Support to Tennessee Tornado Victims

Decatur Team Extends Support to Tennessee: Currently, over 10 thousand folks in Clarksville, Tennessee, are still in the dark without power. However, a North Alabama group is stepping up to assist those in need.

Project Unify in Decatur has teamed up with the Nashville Churches of Christ Disaster Relief Effort to aid those affected by the recent storms. Cody Michael, a volunteer from Decatur, shared that they drove two and a half hours early this morning to offer their support.

“I started helping put those generators at different homes where they’re needed so that people didn’t lose their stuff, whether it be a fridge or a deep freeze,” Michael explained. “It also helps because people could charge their phones, we can get lights turned back on, all kinds of things.”

For Michael, the events of last night hit close to home—literally. His brother-in-law, residing in Clarksville, had his home struck by a tornado.

Project Unify was established with the purpose of assisting those in times of need. Michael emphasized, “It’s our goal to help people physically and spiritually, no matter what their needs are, no matter what they believe, no matter what’s going on with their property or home. We serve people for free because Jesus served us for free.”

Project Unify plans to return to Clarksville in the morning with more volunteers to continue their relief efforts. Michael stressed that there is still much work to be done, especially in areas like Eva Road in Clarksville, which is in dire need of assistance and prayers.

The Clarksville community is relying on the generosity and support of those like Project Unify to navigate through these challenging times.
