Rising country star Tenille Townes has teamed up with Hands On Nashville for a special Giving Tuesday project, reaching out to Music City’s homeless population.

Working with the locally-focused charity organization, the “Somebody’s Daughter” singer put together more than 300 essential supply kits for those without permanent housing, just as winter weather arrives in Middle Tennessee.

Sharing a video of the process on social media, Townes is seen stuffing bags with a variety of much-needed supplies including snacks, soap, hand warmers, toothbrushes and more, and thanking her supporters for making it happen.

“Happy Giving Tuesday out there!!! You guys are pretty awesome,” she wrote. “You can still be a part of supporting people experiencing homelessness in Nashville by requesting a personalized video from me from the link in the good ole bio. Grateful to be working with @honashville to get these out there!!”

Tenille Townes has previously shared her heart for the homeless with her breakout hit, “Somebody’s Daughter,” which highlighted the heartbreaking situation many struggle with every day and night — and how it really could happen to anyone.

The care packages were funded through ticket sales for Tenille’s Giving Tuesday Concert at Marathon Music Works (which has been postponed for the time being as COVID-19 cases spike around the nation), and also by fans requesting personalized videos on her Cameo page. For just $35, fans can ask Townes to send a video shoutout to anyone they’d like.
