With temperatures often soaring above 90 degrees, it is safe to say that August is the hottest month in Nashville. In weather like that, staying hydrated is crucial, but for many in Nashville’s homeless community, it can be hard to do. That is why we at Puckett’s 5th & Church are thrilled to be teaming up again with the Nashville Rescue Mission for “Mission H2O,” a project that provides water to Nashville’s homeless community.
Last year, we collected over 10,000 water bottles, supplied by Kimbro Water Company, for the Mission. With the help of our customers, we know we can do even better this year, so we’ve decided to raise our goal to 15,000 bottles!
Kimbro sources and packages the water bottles locally in Pall Mall, Tenn. and we are very grateful for their partnership as we launch this campaign for the second year in a row.
“We feel very strongly about Mission H2O, and we want to help Puckett’s impact the community in a big way,” Matthew Neary, sales and marketing manager for Kimbro Water Company, said.
From August 1st to August 31st, Puckett’s diners will have the option of adding an extra dollar or two to their bill. For each dollar, two bottles of water will be donated to the Mission. In addition, our parent company, A. Marshall Family Foods Inc. will match the amount donated by our guests.
The Nashville Rescue Mission is dedicated to helping the hungry and homeless, and offers programs that focus on spiritual growth, education, employment and life-recovery. The Mission aims to give members of the community hope for today, hope for tomorrow, and hope for eternity. Help us, along with the Nashville Rescue Mission, spread love and care this August to those who need it the most in our community!
