NASHVILLE, TN - The devastating flooding that happened in Waverly, Humphrey County, and the surrounding areas cost a lot of damage to the residents and even kill some of the community members. The Tennessee Titans acted fast to help the people in need in Waverly, as the team officially pledge support to the victim of the flood and to the Waverly community.

Through the Titans Foundation, the team donated $50,000 which also included a donation from Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk to the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee's Disaster Relief Fund. "The people of Waverly are our neighbors, and as community leaders, we feel like it is our role and our honor to be there when our community needs us," according to the Titans team president and CEO Burke Nihill.

The Titans also supported the local high school football team from Waverly Central High School, as a sign of commitment to developing the local football team. A total of $150,000 donation will be given to the team in the form of football equipment, practice gear, and anything that could support the football program next week. The Titans will also allow the Waverly Central High School football team to play at least one home game at the Nissan Stadium, and a fundraiser will be set during the game to support the team's recovery.

In the final week of preseason against the Chicago Bears, the Tennessee Titans will play at home in the Nissan Stadium on Saturday, Aug. 28. During the game, the Waverly Central High School football team members will be the guest of honor in the stands, and there will be a moment of silence to remember the people who lost their lives in the flooding.
