Fast Pace clinics accepting donations for Harvey relief

JACKSON, Tenn. — Fast Pace Urgent Care is coordinating a Harvey relief drive and accepting donations this week at all of their locations.

Residents have until Friday, Sept. 8, to drop off donations at over 50 Fast Pace locations across Tennessee and Kentucky, according to a release from the health care provider.

Each office will serve as a drop-off point for supplies, which will later be brought to the main Fast Pace support office in Waynesboro, Tenn., before being delivered to residents rebuilding in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
