On Friday, August 18th, Tide Loads of Hope in partnership with country singer, designer, reality star, and wife of Tennessee Titan Eric Decker, Jessie James Decker, kicked off a cross-country journey called “Driving for Hope” and Nashville was the first stop to help those at the Nashville Rescue Mission.
Tide Loads of Hope is a mobile laundromat that travels across the country offering full service laundry to those people in-need and affected by crisis. It was originally created in response to help those devastated by Hurricane Katrina to provide some comfort to people in the midst of crisis. Something that we take for granted every day, but for those in these sort of circumstances it provides a desperate need and gives a sense of normalcy during an uncertain time. Since its inception, Tide has helped to renew hope, normalcy, and provide their mobile services to over 45,000 families across the country.
Jessie James Decker has a love for giving back to her community and is thrilled to be partnered with this cross country initiative. “Driving for Hope” is a clothing drive to collect, renew, and donate clothing directly to families in need and in crisis across the U.S. With the recent Hurricane Harvey damage in Houston and surrounding areas in Texas, this need is heightened. “When Tide Loads of Hope called and told me that they would like to partner together for a clothing drive in Nashville, I loved the opportunity to give back in my hometown. I love how simple it is – washing clothing for someone in need can give them so much confidence.”
We loved the opportunity to speak with Jessie James Decker about her involvement with Tide Loads of Hope and “Driving for Hope”.
Thank you to Tide and Jessie James Decker for your service to the Nashville community!
