NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Spring is in full swing in Middle Tennessee, making now the perfect time to do some spring cleaning and donate your extra T-shirts for people experiencing homelessness.

Ms. Cheap will be hosting a T-shirt drive at Room In The Inn from May 17 through June 4. The drive is sponsored by NewsChannel 5 and Main Street Media of Tennessee.

Clean men's and women's T-shirts are what's needed. They can be from schools, vacation destinations, charity events, brands, concerts, races, etc. The only shirts that will not be accepted are ones that promote alcohol or drugs, or display anything lewd.

"A clean t-shirt can bring relief to those who are enduring the elements, especially as summer approaches," said Melanie Barnett, community development director at Room in the Inn. "We are in need of new or gently used/laundered t-shirts for those in our community. Men's sizes Large - 2X are the most needed."
