Hey Neighbors, here’s another way to SHINE HOPE into someone’s life. There are MANY who are without the basics, like shelter and food. We have witnessed this in our own city. If you have been looking for a worthy mission to support, please consider The Nashville Rescue Mission. I can think of no better cause.
