Description

It's the Holiday Season and while we are buying gifts for our loved ones let's also give back to those in our community!

Join the Nashville Black Professionals Social Networking Group as we gather together to create care packages for the homeless. After putting the care packages together they will be distributed through a couple of organizations: Downtown Presbyterian Churchs' Feeding the Homeless program and the Salvation Army's Bridge Ministry.

WE WOULD LIKE TO GET AS MANY PEOPLE AS WE CAN TO HELP OUT WITH BUYING ITEMS FOR THE CARE PACKAGES TO BE DISTRIBUTED. THE FEEDING THE HOMELESS PROGRAM AT DOWNTOWN PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH USUALLY GETS 100 - 150 HOMELESS PEOPLE WHO COME FOR SATURDAY MORNING BREAKFAST.

Here's what we need from you:

1. Spend a minimum of $10 on items listed below to bring to the the Downtown Presbyterian Church. Whichever items you would like to buy is fine and can be bought at any store: Dollar Tree, Dollar General, WalMart, Target, etc. (If you can donate more $20 worth of items it would be much appreciated but do what you can)
