Williamson Medical Center Donates $25K To Tornado Relief
FRANKLIN, Tenn. - Williamson Medical Center will donate $25,000 to help two Williamson County communities devastated by last week's tornadoes.
Williamson Medical Center Chief Executive Officer Dennis Miller recalls living through a tornado that damaged his home in South Carolina and a new hospital being built under his leadership.
"It hit not only the town of Bennettsville, but also all of the outlying areas that would be comparable to Fairview," Miller said in a news release. "That experience has been on my mind, and I just felt that we should reach out to our neighbors."
The donation will be split between two organizations involved in relief efforts -- Green's Chapel United Methodist Church is helping in Pinewood, and the Fairview High School Relief Fund.
"While Williamson County didn't experience that same level of devastation last week, the feelings of individual loss are the same," he said. "Hopefully Williamson Medical Center's contribution combined with the efforts of others can help restore our community during the long process of rebuilding."
