NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Faith Mitchell looked around her North Nashville neighborhood on Thursday and amidst widespread devastation, she also saw hope.
Hundreds of strangers have descended on this neighborhood hit hard by Tuesday's tornado. Many of them armed with nothing but rubber gloves and a desire to help.
"I feel so thankful," Faith said.
When the tornado first struck residents in this neighborhood largely felt ignored by volunteers and the media. But two days later after the storms came through this neighborhood was filled with volunteers helping to move debris.
Many homes here are so damaged they'll have to be demolished.
"I just hoped that if this were my home, people would be helping me," said volunteer Erica Bowton.
