We are so grateful for this Cub Scout pack coming out of Brentwood! They wanted to help collect and put together kits for ShowerUp because their Scout laws are “Helpful and Clean”! A scout cares about other people. They all talked about how bad it feels to not have access to a Shower or bath when you need one. They also talked about how something as simple as a 15 minute shower and a haircut can make a huge difference to someone who needs it! We here at ShowerUp so appreciate what these boys did! They truly deserve a big THANK YOU!!
We so loved seeing this movie. I have been waiting for it since I read the book. Something that stuck out to me is this homeless man wanted to be seen, he wanted people to look at him. He want d a friend, a friend who wouldn’t leave him, a catch and release he called it. We are all alike, in different environments. God put us here to be in relationship. First and foremost with him, but with others also. Love God, Love Others #samekindofdifferentasme
Thanks so much to @loewshotels for collecting shower poufs for ShowerUp! Their team here in Nashville took a month and collected as many as they could. Their goal was 400 and they blew that away!!!
These will go directly into the hands of grateful people as they get a shower and know that caring people care for them!
Thanks so much Loews for your support!!!
We get asked this from time to time and last night we saw a couple of people with dogs.
Why do the homeless have dogs? Often for the same reasons everyone else does. Companionship-Homelessness is lonely and you don't know who to trust. Security-A dog will notice someone approaching and alert the owner. Often pet owners will make sure the animal is cared for even before their own needs are met...which is why you see little dogs in sweaters!
We so loved having this @rhccgroups small group come last Monday from @rhccinstagram ! We had so much fun with them! It was even a couple of their birthdays and they wanted to serve with ShowerUp! They passed out underwear and socks and even helped clean the showers. We 💜 our volunteers!
We are providing Photo Booth @perfectpartypix At the @danitaschildren fundraiser at @rhccinstagram featuring Mike Fisher and Carrie Underwood as hosts and musical guest. Really awesome event and a great cause!!
We would love for you to join us!
Please let us know if you can come. We are VERY excited to be able to serve here, too and so grateful for folks like #MurfreesboroColdPatrol making it possible.
We are also collecting socks and underwear for this event.
Thanks for being a part of the ShowerUp team!!
This is the SAME guy! One Shower + One Haircut = Transformation. Thanks to @isralking and for @trexattack for loving on our downtown friends. Not only do they volunteer and cut hair, they TALK to them. They get to know them. When they are done, we see the biggest smiles from them! They are clean, and loved on. We all thrive for community. Please take the time to share a smile, a hello, a conversation with someone you normally wouldn’t. It can change not only them but you!!
The kids at Chapman's Retreat Elementary in Spring Hill are collecting supplies and making shower kits for ShowerUp! We are so grateful for all their help and enthusiasm!!! They are loving and giving! Thanks to all the moms and dads who are helping to collect items, too!
