Summer Showers-How can we help?

You may not think much about taking showers, but have you ever thought about the last time a homeless person took a shower?  ShowerUp, (a local mobile shower) thinks about it a lot. They help homeless people in Nashville TN take showers and I want to help raise awareness for this very kind group.

This summer, my goal is to collect 150 items to donate to ShowerUp. You can help from near or far!  I am collecting items in Spring Hill, TN.  You can drop them off at my house, or my parents will help me pick them up at your house!  I will also be at my Grandparents in Ripley WV during the first two weeks of July, and would love to bring some items back to TN to support ShowerUp!

Items I am collecting include:

  • Money (email my Mom and I at for paypal info or our mailing address. 100% of your donation will go to ShowerUp!)
  • New or slightly used towels and washcloths
  • Shampoo (any size)
  • Bodywash (any size)
  • Razors
  • Shower Sponges (Poufeys!)
  • Combs and Brushes
  • Toothbrushes
  • Toothpaste
  • New Underwear (all sizes)It may be a little bit gross but they need it!
  • New Socks (all sizes)
  • Prayers.  Please pray that I exceed my goal, for ShowerUp and the homeless people in Nashville. If your parents say they can’t help, just say have a good day to people you meet and it will have the same effect.

Please comment or send me an email if you are willing to help. I will update later this week!
