In addition to time and money, HUMC members are invited to donate clothing, food, and toiletry items as well as empty aluminum cans.
Give much and often!
Empty Aluminum Cans
We convert your empty aluminum cans into cash provides a hot breakfast and home-made sack lunches for our Room In The Inn guests. Collect cans from your friends and neighbors to bring to church. We accept all kinds of aluminum drink cans as long as they are empty! Each 12 oz. can is worth at least 1 cent. 16 oz. and 32 oz. cans are also welcome! Each year, we convert about 25,000 cans into $300.
Much of our men’s clothing is given to our guests at Room In the Inn, and the remainder is delivered to Thrift Smart in Nashville. Thrift Smart weighs the clothing and we receive credits for every pound donated. Each quarter Hillcrest receives gift cards from Thrift Smart and the cards are given to help those in need of clothing or household items.
