BRENTWOOD, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 28, 2021--
Tractor Supply Company, the largest rural lifestyle retailer in the United States, is supporting its employees, families and neighbors as Humphreys, Hickman, Houston and Dickson Counties recover in the aftermath of the devastating flooding that hit Tennessee on Aug. 21.
The Tennessee-based retailer donated $25,000 to the American Red Cross of Tennessee to assist relief efforts for those impacted by the storm. In addition, Tractor Supply has donated a $5,000 gift card to the Waverly Animal Shelter. In the aftermath of the historic flooding, the local animal shelter has taken in dozens of displaced animals and is in desperate need of supplies and foster homes.
“Right after the storm ravaged this area, Tractor Supply sprang into action,” said Frank Remillard, District Manager for Tractor Supply. “Now more than ever we need to be here to support the community we call home. Our company and our Team Members are dedicated to do whatever we can to help get our friends and neighbors through this tough time.”
The Company mobilized resources and vendor support to provide gift cards and more than 38,000 water bottles to community organizations. The store gift cards can be used for pet and animal products like food, feed and beds, or other necessary supplies for repairs such as tools, stock tanks, extension cords, gloves and more.
“When disaster strikes, Tractor Supply is dedicated to helping our communities,” added Remillard. “Our thoughts continue to be with those affected, and we hope our support will aid in the community’s recovery.”
