Make a Difference Day

Make a Difference Day

This October 28th, volunteers across the nation will unite with a common mission — to improve the lives of other on a day called Make a Difference Day. Misty and Shaquawana plan to do their part again this year, but they need your help. Misty's focus will be on Homeless Awareness, as she plans to prepare bags of necessities for homeless individuals in our area. Shaquawana will host the 6th annual Quawana's Coats, so now is a great time to clean out your closets and gather coats or jackets to donate. There are many ways to get involved!


Misty's Hoimeless Awareness needs:

  • Hotel, travel or trial size bath items — soap, shampoo, lotion, toothpaste
  • Toothbrushes, razors, deodorant, lip balm
  • Gallon-size plastic zip bags, tissues, toilet paper
  • Small towels or washcloths, blankets, socks, umbrellas, backpacks and snack foods

Items may be dropped off at the HRS main office, 235 West Jackson Street, Cookeville, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. (closed 12-1 p.m. for lunch), or by contacting Misty at (931) 526-9793, ext.224. Thank you in advance!
