Heartland Volunteers in the Volunteer State at a Food Bank

Hello Heartlanders rallying in Nashville,

Nashville wants you. Nashville needs you.


If you plan to arrive in Nashville prior to Wednesday and if you want to help us show Nashville how big Heartlanders' hearts really are, please consider joining up to 35 Heartlanders in a volunteer effort in the Volunteer state.

Who: You - Heartlanders in Nashville not later than Tuesday
What: A volunteer activity that will benefit people in middle Tennessee
When: Wednesday, July 14, 9 am to 11 am, leaving the KOA at 8:15 am
Where: Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee [map]

We're looking to supply up to 35 (max) Heartlander who are able and willing to roll up their sleeves and volunteer a couple hours of their time at the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee

We will primarily be sorting and repackaging food items in the warehouse of the food bank.

We will be caravanning in our own vehicles to and from the food bank for this volunteer activity.

We are looking for a coordinator for this event. See details of what we are looking for in a coordinator on the Rally Volunteer Opportunity thread [link]

For everyone at the rally, in addition to volunteering our time on Wednesday, we are holding a Food Drive at the KOA for the entire week of the rally. I have set our goal of collecting 250 food items. And if the food drive results at our recent Wisconsin State Rally was any indicator of the “Heart of Heartland Owners”, we’ll shatter the Nashville goal”.

Several attachments have been added to this thread:

  • General Volunteer Information
  • Policies and Dress Code
  • Volunteer agreement to review, fill-in, print, sign and give to the coordinator the by 8am Wednesday
  • What to Expect as a Volunteer
  • List of foods most needed and in order of the need
  • Map from the KOA to the food bank

Nashville thanks you Heartlanders!

Hey.....Sign both of us up to assist, but dependent on warehouse conditions, my bride's asthma :( may not allow her to hang with us very long. Unless, that is, Vince Gill will be there. :D If he isn't, I guess I'll just have to work twice as hard.
Bummer! :rolleyes:

Dick and Reta
WOW! Heartlanders rock! Thank you so much for slamming this thread so soon after the email went out. We are quickly on our way to 35! I'd like to sign up a couple of alternates as well. Think I'll sign up 39 so be safe, then pare back the morning of.

Thank you Heartlanders :)

Jim, Nancy and I (tom padovano) will like to help out. Let me know what you need. We will be there on Sunday 7-11-10. See you then.


Dick and Karol Lang will be there on Tuesday to help out. We didn't plan on getting there until Wednesday but with all the problems they had there, we are most happy to leave a day earlier.
WOW! Heartlanders - you never cease to amaze me. You are awesome. I think I have all of you added as of this post number.

8 more slots / 4 more couples. This was easy! Thank you, thank you.

Let's make our mark on Nashville and make a difference.



jim I will be willing to help if our plans dont change . Dont think the wifes knees would let her through
