Comeback Coolers heading to Nashville to help flood victims

The local organization Comeback Coolers is heading to Tennessee to help flood victims.

They’ll bring their Comeback Coolers filled with drinks and goodies to those rebuilding while also handing out buckets filled with supplies to linemen.

If you would like to help, there’s a packing party tomorrow at 5:30 p.m. in the parking lot of OS Lumber on Government Street in Ocean Springs.  They need volunteers to decorate the coolers.

Message Comeback Coolers on their Facebook to pick one up. The coolers must be decorated and dropped back off by the time of the packing party.

The group is bringing 100 coolers, 75 linemen buckets, and 25 kids coolers.

Volunteer Cory Ripmaster is delivering coolers and buckets to victims. He’s eager to help lift spirits as these coolers often do in times of natural disasters. “I know what Nashville can do. There’s nothing like a Comeback Cooler. The emotional support, the relief they get, there’s nothing else. We’re just going up there to spread that joy, spread that hope.”

If you can’t make it to the packing party, the nonprofit accepts donations. As of now, they need items for linemen. Examples of donations are socks, Gold Bond foot powder, and cooling rags to name a few.
