'Restore The Dream' Aids Flood Victims 6-30-2010

The WNBA Atlanta Dream and the United Way of Nashville are teaming up to help Nashville recover from the May flood. The Restore the Dream campaign launched Wednesday with the opening of a center in Bellevue.
The Atlanta Dream head coach and general manager, Marynell Meadors, is originally from Nashville and won hundreds of games as the head women's basketball coach at Tennessee Tech.
She returned to her hometown to announce the partnership, which will raise money to help. She said a disaster like this has made her rethink her priorities in life and has urged her to step up and do whatever it takes to help others.
"I think anytime you see disasters like this and people who are in such need, that you, as a person, put behind you things that you think are important," Meadors said. "When it comes to people being flooded and out of their homes, you put that away and try to help as much as you can."
The Restore the Dream campaign vows to keep flood relief efforts in the public eye. All proceeds from the Atlanta Dream's Aug. 1 game will go toward the Restore the Dream fund.
At the five centers, case workers will be able to work individually with families and individuals to determine what their needs are and what they can access.
