NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Those with the Nashville Rescue Mission asked for the community’s help with donations for a group of women who have fallen on hard times.

The Nashville Rescue Mission has been raising money to pay for new bedding for those in the "Life Recovery Program."

“That's not something that people normally think about,” said Cheryl Davis, Senior Director of Development. “It is one of those things, if you are in a home, you take for granted.”

Women in the program have been staying in rooms with extra-long twin beds.

The problem, however, has been finding enough sheets to fit all 86 mattresses.

Mission leaders said it may seem like a simple and small request, but it could make a big difference for women who are trying to turn their lives around.

“We really want to do that to honor these women, so we are giving them the best they can get,” Davis said. “When they are in these terrible circumstances, they can lay down in a comfortable bed with sheets that fit.”

Those with the Nashville Rescue Mission said they’re hoping to raise $2,500 in 30 days.
