Due to a historic storm last week in Tennessee – the community of Lynnville in Giles County — along with many other communities — experienced water main breaks that drained their local utility water supply. In total, 18 communities in Tennessee are currently under a boil water advisory or are without water – and there have been 36 deaths blamed on the winter weather.
Immediately, Lynnville community members began bringing bottled water by the truckload to a central collection point at the Lynnville Train Depot – and Weifield’s Service team (led by Bryson H., Weifield Service Manager) — sprung into action to help. Bryson lives in the nearby town of Culleoka and his church (Connection Church at Richland) is in Lynnville; several of the church’s congregants live in the affected area and the pastor was helping coordinate water donations.
In total, Weifield was able to add 2,016 water bottles to the reserves that were collected for the community!
Said Bryson: “I know a few of the folks that live in the affected area, and they’ve been told it may be two to three weeks before the water is back on and usable. We were glad we could make a small contribution to help out the community!”
So proud of your efforts, Tennessee Team – thanks for upholding our COMMUNITY value and taking quick action to serve!
