We had everything ready for today in Columbia. Dunkin Donuts, water and lots of volunteers. We didn’t have a lot of takers for showers, still being so new to Columbia but we will still be back next Saturday! We are so thankful for@the community.
Sometimes it’s so great to see a friend! I was sitting at work the other day in a meeting all the way in Murfreesboro. All of a sudden I heard my name and a big hello. It was my James from downtown. He showers every week with us. He gets up early every morning in his tent area around 5. He checks in at his temp agency to see about work. Y’all he does this every. single.day. He was working that delivering product to our store. Amazing! He was so happy to see a friend as was I. I know he works hard and it just made our day to see each other. Happy Friday!
We love this sweet picture of Thay helping Jessica with her hair after her shower. He gently braided it so that it would stay off her face. Also it was much cooler that way she said. Everyone was wishing he would braid their hair as well. So awesome when you see someone do something they enjoy.
We will be in Columbia, TN this Saturday 10-12! Right back @agapefamilyhealth. It looks like we will have beautiful weather. If you want to volunteer you can go to our website to sign up. Link is in bio. We will have socks, hygiene bags, and more. If you would like to provide breakfast, coffee or water be sure and let us know. We can’t wait to serve our friends in the area!
Our friend Wally joined us this week! We are really grateful that he came with his small group. There are so many ways to help and be a part of what happens with ShowerUp. Listen to him share how he was able to get involved...
Meet our little friend Amiss! He belongs to one of our favorite families. They have a home, work and try hard to manage everything! We just can’t resist his cheeky little self! To meet him is to LOVE him!
It was so awesome to have the @womenimpactnashville with us tonight for the unveiling of the new shower!! Micheal was the first one it it! He said it had lots of room and was clean and hot. We LOVE the impact these ladies have made on our friends!
Tonight is the night we debut our brand new trailer! This was given to Showerup by the @womenimpactnashville and we are so thrilled to have them on board. This will enable us to shower many many more friends. Come see us at the War Memorial from 6-8! We would love to meet you.
What do you usually ask for on your birthday? Today we celebrated with one of our friends downtown. He turned 38. He had told us his birthday was coming and we asked him what he wanted. He simply said, Coca-Cola. We said there had to be something else? He said nope, just some bottles of Coca Cola. He said he loves it, but never gets it. It’s a rare treat. We thought wow! The things we take for granted. We have so much access to things we don’t even realize. When he received it today he just smiled real big and couldn’t believe we remembered. We sang to him and also gave him a mat for his sleeping bag. At the end we hugged him and told him we loved him. He thanked us for making his birthday special. Something so little, meant so much.
