Welcome to Nolachucky Disaster Relief. We're glad you're here.

Donations for Gatlinburg & Sevier County are being received at God’s Warehouse from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm on Thursday, Dec. 1 and Friday, Dec. 2. God's Warehouse is located at 3441 West Andrew Johnson Hwy, Morristown.  At the moment the Red Cross has asked us to stop collecting items as they have a huge inventory and storage is a problem in the Sevier County area. If your church or group already has items collected we will continue to receive them at God’s Warehouse but we ask that promotions for collection of items stop. The great need is now financial to aid the victims and the relief effort. Your support of our Disaster Relief efforts is greatly appreciated and needed.
 

Financial donations may be made to Nolachucky Baptist Association designated for Disaster Relief.  These financial donations should be brought to our office at 304 Calvary Drive or mailed to us at PO Box 326, Morristown, TN 37815.

 

Thanks to everyone working at the warehouse to receive supplies and to everyone who has brought supplies. The outpouring has been tremendous.  

 

If you have had Introduction to Disaster Relief and / or any specialized classes, and your class certification has expired or will expire in the coming year, please take the opportunity and get re-certified, so that you may be able to serve when a disaster occurs.
