  • Hygiene items
  • Wipes
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Heavy duty boots
  • Gloves
  • Eye protection
  • Tyvek suits
  • Dust masks
  • Surface cleaners
  • Mops/brooms
  • Large trash bags
  • Socks
  • Undergarments
  • Flashlights
  • First aid kits

While Good360 has shipped two truckloads of early response goods to Tennessee, there is an urgent need for additional goods and supplies. Companies with any of the products listed above can contact Good360 here https://good360.org/donate-goods/. Also, cash donations are critical because they allow responding organizations like Good360 to provide exactly what support is needed in a timely fashion.

“We are thankful to our corporate partners for their quick response, and we look forward to collaborating with additional companies to increase our impact in Tennessee,” said Jim Alvey, Director of Partnerships, Disaster Recovery.

To date, the following Good360 corporate partners have pledged their support:

  • Crate and Barrel
  • CarMax
  • GAF
  • The UPS Foundation

With both the frequency and intensity of natural disasters on the rise, there’s an urgent need for a thoughtful approach to the way we respond and help impacted communities recover,” continued Alvey. “Instead of sending unsolicited goods, 60% of which go to waste, Good360 partners with trusted nonprofits that understand what’s needed on the ground, as well as when it’s needed.”
