Winter is here, and that means we continue to need survival kits for outreach workers to take to camps. Our 12-15 outreach workers will each need at least 25 kits to take with them, which adds up to about 375 kits for the coming months.

Will you help us make this happen?

You can drop off items on Monday mornings, from 10:30AM-Noon at Woodbine United Methodist Church [2621 Nolensville Pike] OR at any of our resource shelters [every 2nd and 4th Fridays] from 5:30-9:30PM at the following locations:

  • Hillcrest United Methodist Church [5112 Raywood Lane]
  • Barth Vernon United Methodist Church [6200 Robertson Avenue]
  • First Church of the Nazarene [510 Woodland Street]
  • Flatrock Coffee, Tea, and More [Suite C, 2640 Nolensville Pike, Nashville]

These kits will need to contain:

  • Emergency blanket
  • Warm sleeping bags (preferably rated 10º or lower) or warm blankets
  • Tarps (8×10 or larger)
  • Hand and foot warmers
  • Warm socks (wool, if possible)
  • Warm gloves
  • High protein snacks
