NASHVILLE, TN—Nashville Park Center is on its way to support the community and neighborhood of Nashville to combat summer heat by collecting supplies and donations.

Supplies needed include water bottles and 1-gallon-jugs, portable fans, batteries (AA and D-cell), cold packs, and cooling towels. The following items can be sent to 948 Woodland St, Nashville, TN 37206, from Monday-Friday between 8:00 am - 3:00 pm. People can also donate $25 to provide relief to people in need, which can be sent through its website at

Park Center encourages and empowers people struggling with mental illness and substance use disorders to live and work in their communities. With a handful of help from sponsors and stakeholders, the committee is pursuing its way to spread an upbeat and positive attitude across the Nashville neighborhood. The community has met people through the community who are in need to provide support through treatment, housing, day programs, and employment services. Park Center provides hope and helps its members to navigate challenges and better life and work in the community.

During its journey, Park Center has successfully gained about $1 Million grant to expand street medicine and connect individuals with care, created seven new outreach workers who were canvassing downtown Nashville to find resources for those experiencing housing crises, rescued 38 individuals, and provide housings after floods destroyed their homes, and more to come. There are also several services offered by Park Center to support its mission as psychiatric rehabilitation, residential services, supported employment, emerging adults service, and homeless outreach.

Visit Park Center at the website for more information about their services and volunteer opportunities available.
