Local opportunity to help in Nashville

Ordinary Hero has been asked to find volunteers to serve in the play room that Bright Spaces donated to the Nashville Rescue Mission's shelter for women and children. They have an anticipated move in date of the updated facility on the 1st of May. At that time they will need volunteers to help oversee the children in the play room from 8:30-11:30 and then again from 1-3:00, 7 days a week. There are computers for the older children and toys and books for the younger children. This is a great way to reach out as an encouragement, happy face, and light to these children residing at the mission. You can help bring hope to those who need it most.

If you would like to volunteer or if you have friends, co workers, and you would like to come together as a group then please go to the site listed below to sign up as a volunteer. You can list Ordinary Hero as the group name. A volunteer application must be filled out for each person. You will then be contacted. If you have any questions you can contact Mary Crutcher, the director of the women's mission, directly at 312-1571. Also, please reply to this post at info@ordinaryhero.org if you plan to volunteer so we can keep track of you in our data base and get you on the schedule. Let us know which days and times you would be interested in. You can choose any day and any time frame you like.

Also, items needed for the new updated facility (which is awesome...I took a tour!!) are twin flat sheets and pillow cases, plastic pillow covers,new twin mattresses that have a plastic cover.

Also, pictures and art for the walls. If you are a local artist that would like to donate your work to be hung in the mission, contact us. Also, plants are needed.

One last thing, if you know of any day camps that would host these children in the summer please contact us. They desperately need things to keep them busy during the summer.

Thank you for volunteering and helping to change the world for one. You never know what a difference you can make in a child's life by the simple gesture of spending time with them and giving them the encouragement they need. This can be that "something" when we say to ourselves, "I just want to do something to help, but I don't know what to do."

Blessings,
Kelly
