Tracy Lawrence hand-delivered $10,000 to each of six different charities yesterday (Tuesday, November 29th) as part of Giving Tuesday. All of the organizations — Safe Haven, People Loving Nashville, Shower Up, The Laundry Stop, Brooks House and Open Table — are committed to ending homelessness across Middle Tennessee. This latest gesture adds to Tracy's history of charitable acts through his Mission:Possible organization.
He said, “While we were able to reach new records at the Turkey Fry last week, we realize there is a growing need around Middle Tennessee that continues to need our support. We're thankful for all our supporters that make it possible for us to lend a hand to multiple organizations.”
Mission:Possible's longest-running annual event – the Thanksgiving week Turkey Fry and Benefit Concert – fried a record-breaking 1,200 turkeys and fed over 9,600 of those in need this holiday season. The benefit concert went on to raise another record-breaking $250,000 in support of Nashville Rescue Mission. This year's event included Gary Allan and Travis Denning.
