Nashville Rescue Mission Needs Bottled Water

Nashville Rescue Mission Needs Bottled Water.
NASHVILLE, TN — With temperatures expected to get back into the 90s this weekend, the Nashville Rescue Mission is readying its Hot Patrol and it needs bottled water donations to meet the demand.
“When the temperature is 92 degrees and above the Mission will send out our Hot Patrol van,” said Mike Tatar, lead case manager.
“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.” (For more updates on this story and free news alerts for your neighborhood, sign up for your local Middle Tennessee Patch morning newsletter.)
“We are serving over 800 people each and every day,” said Rev.
Glenn Cranfield, president and CEO of Nashville Rescue Mission.
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.” The mission says water bottle supplies are low and is asking for help from the Nashville community to build up its supply of bottled water in order to help those in need this weekend, as well as those who will be in need throughout the summer.
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 at
