From the homeless population to littered parks, downtown Nashville is full of opportunities for you to get out and support your local neighborhood.
1. Volunteer with an Organization
Hands-down, this is one of the easiest ways to step in and help out your local community. Volunteering is as easy as finding an opportunity and organization online, signing up, and selecting your date to work. Hands On Nashville has a lengthy list of opportunities to choose from, including delivering diapers, food distribution, and relief/hygiene kit preparation.
2. Pick a Park & Pick Up Trash
With over 15 parks to choose from in the downtown Nashville area, there are plenty of places to visit when it comes to cleaning up the neighborhood. All you need are some trash bags, a pair of gloves, and a face mask. Organize a group of friends or neighbors and head out into the community to do a little trash clean up – we promise, it’s more rewarding than it sounds!
3. Offer to Help Your Neighbors
From offering a favor to a neighbor for a last minute dog sitting request to lending a hand to assist with a move, there are plenty of ways to step in and support your neighbors. Plus, you just might make a new friend along the way! Just log into our resident portal and put a posting up!
4. Shovel Snow
While the downtown Nashville area isn’t known for drastic bouts of a winter wonderland scene, we do still get our fair share of snowy weather. Make someone’s day and lend a helping hand by spending a morning out in your neighborhood shoveling the front steps of someone’s home. Your local Hillsboro Hardware and Repair Shop has shovels for about $12.
5. Make Care Packages
Roughly 20,000 people are homeless or living off the streets in the Nashville area. So why not show them a little love by giving them a care package. Visit the nearby Dollar General and pick up water bottles, hand wipes, deodorant, tissue packs, snacks, and gloves. Put them all in a small bag and hand them out to those who need it most.
