Subject: Homeless in Murfreesboro — can you help?

Homelessness is a growing problem in our town, particularly due to lack of affordable housing and limited mental health resources.

Please consider donating your time, you talents, and/or your money. You may reach Murfreesboro Cold Patrol Executive Director, Jason Bennett, at jason@murfreesborocoldpatrol.com or call the MCP office at (615)434-COLD.

The Coldest Nights Shelter will be open 12/12 and on the freezing several nights over the next weeks and months. Volunteering at the shelter is an easy gig.

You can learn more about the Murfreesboro Cold Patrol at www.murfreesborocoldpatrol.com/or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/Murfreesborocoldpatrol/

Thanks in advance.
