The Radiothon event is Monday, November 22, from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. on SuperTalk 99.7 WTN. The Nashville radio station will broadcast live from the Nashville Rescue Mission.
"It's been a tough year for many families, especially with the rising cost of food, rent, retail items and gasoline," said Chairman and CEO Mark Spain. "One of our core values at Mark Spain Real Estate is to lead with a servant's heart. The Nashville Rescue Mission really exemplifies this with its tireless, year-round effort to provide a number of services and necessities to Nashville residents in need."
Since 1954, the Nashville Rescue Mission is a faith-based organization making a profound difference to the area's homeless men, women and children—physical and emotional needs, spiritual growth, education, employment and life recovery. In 2020 the Nashville Rescue Mission served nearly 425,000 meals and provided 212,379 nights of shelter.
The Mission's costs have risen in 2021—mainly due indirectly to COVID—with increased facility cleaning costs, more employee overtime expenses due to employee absences to quarantine, and purchasing more food when surplus donations from area hotels shrank.
The Nashville Rescue Mission estimates providing a single meal costs $2.26. For less than a $10 donation, a family of four can enjoy a hot meal. Its goal is to raise enough funding during the 14-hour Radiothon to serve over 44,000 meals. The Mission has partnered with SuperTalk 99.7 WTN (http://www.997wtn.com/
