Who do we have around the Knoxville area?

I think this is probably for real - not a hoax, and we should think about what we can do.

I have posted it on the VETERANS NETWORK thread in General, and am checking on the source.

What can we do, and what might be needed? When trouble comes to a neighbor, we should step up

This is in the TAZEVILLE township, NNE of Knoxville just north of Cherokee Lake.


If this persons home really did burn down four days ago - then they probably need clothing, and danged near everything...

*It ISN'T just a case of "THOW MONEY AT IT"

CANNED goods
Did they lose their vehicles?

We need to look at it and figure out the needs.


Insurance may handle a lot - but not everything, and not for a WHILE. They always drag their heels, don't they?


What is necessary in order to help this person RIGHT now, and what can we or should we volunteer...
*There's gotta be some church groups out around there too


I may not be able to do much - without any wheels under me right now - but I SHO' KNOW HOW to git attention to a thang...


GO VOLS!
