Tracy Lawrence Helps Feed the Homeless
Tracy Lawrence is again teaming up with the Nashville Rescue Mission for the Third Annual Tracy Lawrence Mission Possible Turkey Fry presented by Dan McGuinness Irish Pub, Tuesday, Nov. 25, in downtown Nashville.
Tracy and his crew will deep-fry 400 turkeys to feed the men, women and children served by the Nashville Rescue Mission, a shelter for the homeless. The Tennessee Titans Cheerleaders will also be on hand from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. to collect donations of canned goods, clothing and personal items. Those who donate the first 100 items will receive a CD signed by Tracy, either his current album, For the Love, or his Christmas collection, All Wrapped Up in Christmas. Other country artists will be stopping by during the day to visit and help cook
“We cook all day,” Tracy tells Country Weekly. “It’s usually dark by the time we get finished and pack up and everything. It’s so fulfilling because I get to talk to a lot of the people at the Mission and see what they’re going through and how they want to be good, contributing members of society again. These are good people who have just fallen on hard times.” Tracy adds, “I’m very appreciative of the opportunity to give back to the Nashville area and hope we’re able to help a lot of people over the holiday season. I know these are hard times for a lot of us, but if we all pull together, we can make this mission possible.”
The Nashville Rescue Mission is located at 639 Lafayette Street in Nashville.
