It's no secret that we are big fans of the Oasis Center, which offers a variety of different programs "to help young people overcome serious challenges that prevent them from transitioning into a healthy adulthood." In fact, we like it so much that we selected Oasis Center co-founders Hal Cato and Roger Dinwiddie as our 2009 Nashvillians of the Year.
The Oasis Center is currently running its "Adopt-a-Family" campaign to help put groceries, clothes and gifts on the tables of struggling Nashvillians this holiday season. There are a few ways that you can help:
• Write a check — or buy gift cards to Kroger, Walmart or Target — and mail or deliver them to:
• If you'd like to be matched with a family or individual at Oasis Center's residential program, and to shop for gifts for them, contact Andrew at (615) 327-4455 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donate! You'll be glad you did.
