2014 Project Backpack in Nashville

On August 5th, Ordinary Hero held it's annual Project Backpack for the children at the Nashville Rescue Mission. 65 backpacks were filled with school supplies and distributed by Ordinary Heroes with great big hearts! 

BIG thanks to Bev Stacey for organizing such a much needed outreach for these children.  We really appreciate you always doing such a great job, Bev!

We want to thank all of you who donated toward this outreach! We also want to thank all the families who showed up to help pass out backpacks. This is always a great way to get the kids involved in giving back. 

We had many young volunteer Ordinary Heroes helping to make sure each child got a backpack filled with supplies. 

One family donated a backpack with supplies and added a sweet note with it. The mother came up to our coordinator and asked her to be sure to tell this family how much the backpack meant to her since she was not able to provide for her daughter this year. 
The smallest acts of kindness can mean the world to someone in need. We can all make a difference in the life of another that could use our blessing. Thanks to all who participated in blessing these sweet children and their mothers.
