NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Grand Avenue is teaming with Gray Line Tennessee and Stewart Transportation on an effort within Nashville’s local transportation community to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey in Houston and the surrounding areas.
The companies are working through the Austin Disaster Recovery Network to gather the most needed supplies, which will be sent down to Austin next week on one of Gray Line’s motor coaches.
Those interested in donating can do so by purchasing supplies through MyRegistry.com, then having the items delivered to the 186 North First Street corporate offices for both Grand Avenue and Gray Line. Alternatively, supplies can be purchased independently and dropped off at the offices during normal business hours. Supplies must be purchased and delivered via MyRegistry.com or dropped at 186 North First Street by Tuesday, September 19th.
“As a city with flood devastation experience, we all recognize how difficult the recovery process can be and how every little bit helps,” said Terrie Lane, VP of operations and general manager of Grand Avenue. “We’re proud to be working with Gray Line and Stewart Transportation on this effort and hope that, with the help of transportation organizations in our local community, we can help the people of Houston get back on their feet soon.”
Supplies requested include clean-up products, like garbage bags, mops and latex gloves, as well as self-care products, like sunscreen and insect repellant. For the full list of supplies, visit: https://www.myregistry.com/business/Stewart-Transportation-Solutions-Melrose-Tn/1425203.
