«WARM YOUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS»
OUR MISSION: To Help Our Brothers and Sisters in need.
We may not save the world. We may not end homelessness, but with your help, we can and will help get good people off the streets, back on their feet, and hopefully being productive again. We can make their lives more livable if not just a little warmer — but only with your help.
The middle TN homeless are everyday people. Some were US Veterans that fought for our rights and freedom. Yet some may be sick, physically and mentally with nobody to love or help them. Some are young kids that came from broken homes with only sadness and pain in their hearts.
Some are people like us that were going through life happy; then their company moved. They lost their good paying job and couldn't find another one that paid enough to cover the bills. Next thing you know, they found themselves on the streets. Yes, we see it all the time. They are all God's children like you and me. <3
Last year we learned that the shelters and churches are always full in the winter cold. Sometimes the streets are the only option, but they are wet and so very cold in the fall and winter.

Please bring to the locations below what you may have — used, new, or borrowed lol <3 Clean Blankets, Mens Warm Coats, Gloves, Mens Blue Jeans, Mens Sweatshirts, Long Johns, new or washed Socks, New Boxers or Boxerbriefs, Tents, ground cover, Sleeping Bags, air mattresses and other warm clothes are needed now please… Please only winter items and CLEAN not worn-out items. >> PLEASE NOTE: AT THIS TIME WE DO NOT NEED CHILDREN'S ITEMS.

NOTE THE TIME OF THE EVENT:
We are NOT doing this event on the event date listed above. We call this an «ongoing event» because we are collecting clothes every day and handing them out all winter long so the event date will automatically change to the next month on the event site. (we use important days like Christmas or Valentine's or Halloween) It keeps the page active.
