NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- (Roger Susanin) Thousands of Kurdish refugees whose lives have been thrown topsy turvy by ISIS will be receiving some help thanks to the generosity of Middle Tennessee.
The Salahadeen Center in South Nashville recently shipped more than 750 boxes of clothing and other items to people who have been displaced. The relief effort which the Salahadeen Center called "All for Kurdistan" received far more supplies than they were anticipating.
The director of the Salahadeen Center says the drive was successful because of the incredible genorosity of Nashville residents.
