Greeneville, Tennessee – The local offices of Apex Bank are accepting donations to continue to aid the victims of the floods in Waverly, TN. The floods – which took place on August 21, 2021 – left hundreds homeless and in need of simple necessities.
“We at Apex Bank have a long-standing history of helping out our community and whether it is the day after a major disaster, or weeks later when the need is still urgent, we want to be there”, stated Jeanette Edens, manager of Apex Bank’s Bulls Gap office and organizer of the collection. “Their need continues and we want to help fulfill that need and give our local communities the opportunity to participate.”
“We have been humbled by the outpouring of support from around the Volunteer state”, stated Marcus Vine, West Tennessee President. “We are very thankful for our Apex family and friends in East Tennessee who continue to step up and help meet the day to day needs that persist for so many impacted by the Waverly flood. The road to recovery would not be possible without giving and caring neighbors, both far and near.”
A trailer will be set up at three different Apex Bank offices between the dates of October 1st and October 9th. The schedule for donations is as follows: Apex Bank Bulls Gap (105 N. Main Street) October 1st from 9-6 and October 4th from 9-5, Apex Bank Rogersville (4020 Hwy 66 S.) October 5th & 6th from 9-5, and Apex Bank Andrew Johnson Hwy (3015 W. A. J.
