As the temperatures rise, so has the Nashville Rescue Mission’s need for bottled water.

The nonprofit agency said its supply has dwindled and it is almost completely out.

“When temperatures reach 92 degrees and above, the Mission sends out our Hot Patrol,” said Rev. Glenn Cranfield, president and CEO of Nashville Rescue Mission. “Our teams visit local parks and other areas where those battling homelessness tend to hand out, giving out cold bottles of water, and encouraging them to come back to the Mission for shelter, refreshment, and spiritual guidance. We also make cold water available to our guests throughout the day to insure they stay hydrated. Right now we are almost completely out of bottled water. We need the community’s help in gearing up for what I anticipate to be a difficult summer for our homeless community.”

The Mission’s Donation Center is located at 616 7th Avenue S. It is open Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. You can also make a donation at
