We’re Launching Operation: Rocky Top

Severe weather, including an EF3 tornado, swept through East Tennessee on Sunday causing extensive damage to properties in Campbell and Claiborne Counties.

After deploying a reconnaissance team in the immediate wake of the storms, Region 4 is launching Operation: Rocky Top and calling on members within 300 miles of LaFollette, TN to provide relief in the coming days. Volunteers should complete their profiles through Roll Call and standby for further instruction.

Let’s get ready for some good old fashioned chainsaw handy work, debris removal, and roof-tarping. If you won’t be sweating it out with the team in the field, back ’em up with a donation or let others know we’re moving in and join the street team.
