Today I wanted you to meet Christine. She has a big day. She came to us last night for a shower and a haircut. She told us she has a huge job interview today at the Brazilian Steakhouse. She really wanted this job she told me. It gives her a sense of normalcy and people see her if she works. I wanted to hug her. We see you Christine and we love you. Life isn’t easy on the streets and not everyone is looking for a handout. Look around you today, and really SEE people. A huge shoutout to @nashvillestreetbarbers for the haircut. We love our people.
Come join ShowerUp (and even most of our board members!) as we volunteer and serve. If you want to bring cold water or something cold to drink and share that would be awesome! See you tonight 5:45-8:15pm at the War Memorial Plaza!
It may have rained, but we made it out first!! Upon arriving we had over 25 people in line for a shower. As it gets warmer the lines get longer. We distributed over 140 lbs of clothes and everyone drank about 3 cases of water! What a day! See you tomorrow!
We are going to have a lot of it this summer and our friends who are outside all day could use sunscreen! If you have travel size or small tubes of sunscreen those can make a real difference in someone’s day. Our drop off locations are in Nashville at The Church at Woodbine, in Cool Springs at Gigi’s Cupcakes and in Spring Hill at the UPS Store. Also don’t forget to let us know if you can help our events on Sundays! In the shade under the Jefferson Street bridge!!
A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon! 1:30-3:30pm at Jefferson and 2nd Ave N under the Jefferson Street bridge. No experience needed! Great atmosphere and always in the shade!! Sign up link in comment...
Repost by @emilystroudhair Transformation Tuesday! ...it’s really easy to find an excuse not to work on your night off, but last night was exactly what I needed to feed my soul!! ***Emily cut one of my most favorite friends hair. Kyle is so sweet and his smile will light up his face, when he feels like smiling. When he doesn’t I can see it in his eyes. I am thankful for Emily and the @nashvillestreetbarbers for taking the time on their day off to love on our friends. Not only cut hair, but to talk, to laugh and have meaningful conversation right there on the street. Monday’s are my favorite.
Most awesome backpack alert! Gotta love a good ninja turtle. Every week we get asked for backpacks. And why? Most everything they have has to fit in one. Our friends carry it wherever they go. All their belongings. One bag. If you have one laying around you don’t need we would love them. And if they are ninja turtle...bonus!
The lines were long tonight but we had lots of fun! Everyone was hot and sweaty and needed a shower. We ran constantly until 8:00 and turned several away. @franklinwhits came and brought cold refreshing water and soda! They were quick to go. @nashvillestreetbarbers ended up with 39 hair cuts!! @peoplelovingnashville served 300 meals!! What a night! #whosaidmondaysarentfun
