If you were impacted by the storm and are in need of resources and disaster relief information, please call the Putnam County EMA at (931) 646-4636.

Donations:  Due to the tremendous outpouring of support, donation sites are currently at capacity.  At this time we recommend making monetary donations to the Cookeville Putnam County Tornado Relief Fund that has been established at the Bank of Putnam County.  Donations can be made at any of the BPC locations.  You may contact the Bank of Putnam County at (800) 368-2498 (Toll Free) or donate at Venmo: @CookevillePutnamCountyTornado.  If you want to donate goods or services, please email with your contact information.

Volunteer Information: The Putnam County Emergency Management Agency says that due to safety concerns in the impacted area, no visitors or volunteers will be permitted to enter at this time.  Anyone interested in volunteering should register with Samaritan’s Purse by texting (931) 261-8567.  A representative will respond and provide up-to-date information.
