Happy Summer, everyone! We’re getting ready to celebrate the season change with our very first Christmas in July party! We’re extra excited about this event because the party benefits Nashville children in need.
We hope you’ll join us as we collect new (or gently-used) coats and sweaters for local children in need!
When: Saturday, July 23 from 10 am-2 pm
Where: Thriftsmart, at 4890 Nolensville Road
Everyone who brings a coat or sweater donation will receive a $5 gift card from Thriftsmart and a $50 coupon for our moving services! Plus we’ll be making fun kid-friendly DIY crafts out of moving boxes and have plenty of drawings, contests, and giveaways.
And if your family loves listening to Mix 92.9 on the radio, you’ll want to stop by during the 11 o’clock hour to hang out with the Mix 92.9 Street Team! They’ll bring plenty of goodies to add to the party.
Who will receive these coats?
Nashville’s TWO MEN AND A TRUCK works with the PENCIL Foundation to support the lower income students of Park Avenue Elementary School. Many of these students’ families are unable to afford new coats when their children grow bigger each winter, so we decided to host a coat drive to benefit Park Avenue’s kids! Every coat and sweater collected at our Christmas in July party will either be given to a Park Avenue student this winter, or will be donated to local non-profits benefiting the homeless (if the coat/sweater will not fit a child).
Help us spread the word!
