Open Table Nashville’s incredible work in the community happens because of the financial support of individuals, congregations, organizations, and foundations who share the vision and work we do. While monetary donations keep us going, in-kind donations of furniture, hygiene products, clothes, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, socks, towels, sheets, tarps, tents, water, and many other items also help us stay in operation.
If you have any questions about donations or would like to set up a furniture or donation pick up, please fill out this form. Don’t forget to visit our initiatives page to learn more about the work we’re doing across the city!
