Brad Paisley’s non-profit grocery store, aptly named The Store, is mobilizing to care for Nashville’s seniors in need. They’ve hatched a plan to deliver free groceries as the risk of coronavirus infection continues.

Speaking on social media, Paisley explains that senior citizens really shouldn’t be out shopping right now — since they are at the greatest risk of becoming seriously ill, and could pick up the virus in the process. With that in mind, The Store is stepping in to help.

They’ll now begin delivering a week’s worth of supplies to seniors in Nashville’s Edgehill and Berry Hill neighborhoods, and Paisley is asking anyone who should be included on the delivery schedule (or knows someone who should) to email info@thestore.org.

As a resource for free food and essentials, Paisley teamed with Belmont University and others to open The Store earlier this year. The Store itself is also still open, and those in need can walk in Thursday – Friday from 1 – 7 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., with ID and proof of income/statement of unemployment. Here’s Paisley’s full message:

“So, in light of changing times, @thestore_nashville is mobilizing delivery of a week’s groceries to our elderly neighbors in Edgehill and Berry Hill on Wednesday’s/Thursdays,” Paisley wrote. “If anyone needs to be included on this list, we urge them to contact info@thestore.org. Also We will continue to operate regular hours 1-7 Th/F 11-5 Sat for walk ins but please bring ID and either proof of income, proof of residence, or statement of unemployment for our recently unemployed neighbors. #nashvillestrong”
