Donations for Nashville Neighbors

Supporting Those Impacted by Christmas Morning Explosion

On Christmas morning, there was an intentional bombing/explosion on 2nd Avenue North in downtown Nashville, Tennessee. The person responsible, who died in the explosion, has been identified. During the investigation, areas of downtown Nashville were closed, temporarily displacing residents and closing businesses.

We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from people all over the world. Many asked how to help, so we collected donations.

Through your generous donations, we raised $34,550 for impacted residents and businesses and their employees!

Thank you so much for everything you do for this great city. Because of you, we are #NashvilleStrong.
