From Fox 17– The Nashville Rescue Mission only has about two weeks of bottled water supply left and is in desperate need of supplies.
While temperatures haven’t reached critical levels yet, the mission will need bottled water to get it through the summer as those hot temperatures are sure to come.’
The NRM launches its “Hot Patrol” on particularly hot days. THe mission serves more than 800 people every day.
“When the temperature is 92 degrees and above the Mission will send out our Hot Patrol van,” Mike Tatar, lead case manager, said. “We patrol the streets of Nashville handing out cold bottles of water to the homeless, and encouraging them to come back to the Mission for shelter, refreshment, and spiritual guidance. We also make cold water available to our guests throughout the day to insure they stay hydrated.”
“Even a small act of kindness—like handing a cold bottle of water to someone on the street—might be the very thing that convinces them to seek shelter and could potentially save their life,” Rev. Glenn Cranfield, president and CEO of Nashville Rescue Mission, said.
The Mission’s Donation Center is located 616 7th Avenue South, Nashville, TN 37203. It’s open Monday through Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Or if you prefer you can make an online donation by clicking here.
