The Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee’s facility was one of many buildings that were in the direct line of the flood. Currently without electricity, the staff continues to salvage as much of their previously stored food as possible as they simultaneously seek a new location.

The Nashville Area Habitat for Humanity is actively involved in the rebuilding of homes and lives for families and individuals in the Nashville communities. In the aftermath of natural disasters – including floods – the Nashville Area Habitat for Humanity becomes an even more important facet in helping those who have lost their homes rebuild and re-locate into a new one.

Roughstock’s Editor, Matt Bjorke, states, “When I realized how devastating the two days of rain on May 1 and 2 were to my Nashville area neighbors, I immediately wanted to help any way I could. Using Roughstock as a platform and partnering with Country Angel’s Networkhas allowed me to help out the best possible way. Enlisting friends and artists in the community, I am proud that we’re hosting this benefit for Second Harvest of Middle Tennessee and the Nashville Area Habitat for Humanity. With so many people needing the help, these two great programs will help reach many people as they recover from the floods. The spirit of the Nashville community and all of Tennessee is heartening and truly shows why we live in the Volunteer State.”

Country Angel’s Network CEO, Estella Pan, agrees. “Perhaps the most beautiful thing to emerge from this tragedy is seeing everyone join forces and continue to help each other in the aftermath.”

The “Rebuilding Nashville” campaign fits hand in hand with the Country Angel’s Network holding mission, which is to host annual online auctions and fundraising campaigns to benefit children, families, and communities with an immediate financial need at hand. Like many, Estella was deeply shaken by the damaging flood that tore through middle Tennessee, including Nashville. “It was important to both Matt and I that the funds raised in our campaign stay IN Tennessee to directly benefit those in the community whose homes and lives were affected by the flood.”

Country Angel’s Network hosts annual online auction events, as well as fundraiser campaigns throughout the year! For additional information on Country Angel’s Network auctions and updates on all past beneficiaries, please visit
