Many churches and community organizations have proven that Tennessee is still the home of volunteers by spending countless hours in the Doe Valley and Butler areas of Johnson County trying to help residents still coping with the terrible storms and tornado that slammed into the area last week destroying numerous homes and killing two local women.
“It has been amazing to see how hard (the) pastors have worked helping the community throughout this disaster,” said Johnny Hobbs, director of disaster relief for the Watauga Baptist Association. “They deserve much more credit than we do. Churches up there have really stepped up and done an amazing job. It really takes everyone working together to get the job done, and that is what is happening up there. Our volunteers are wonderful. We have had some work every single day.”
The Watauga Baptist Association has a mobile laundry unit in operation at Bethany Baptist Church,
5950 Hwy 67 W, Mountain City, TN 37683. They have also just set up a mobile shower unit where victims and families can shower.
