Volunteering with Luke 14:12 doesn’t always mean hustling to bring food to the table or to get that plate ready before the lunch crowd arrives. Some days, volunteering with Luke 14:12 means that you can spend time outside, smelling the wonderful aromas of tailgating parties and hearing the booming of the marching band getting ready to fire up the crowd!

In 2017, Luke 14:12 benefitted directly from the program sales at the Vanderbilt home football games. We had amazing volunteers who arrived about 2 hours before the game to sell football programs to fans and visitors arriving at the stadium. There is no quota to meet, we only ask that you bring your enthusiasm and a smile! Fifteen minutes after the game begins, those volunteers got to take a seat for free in specially reserved sections and cheer their hearts out.
We were overwhelmed by the generous support of our donors, who contributed $5,098 to our mission to serve our hungry neighbors. In addition to these donations, Luke 14:12 received a monetary award of $1,750 from The Big Payback for the most unique donations from a small organization between 6am and 9am! Thank YOU for making that happen!
We asked for your help and you showed up! On March 25th, local Nashvillians donated over $2,000 to Luke 14:12 at Freebirds. These donations will provide quality meals to 2,200 of your hungry and homeless neighbors! Thank you for the AMAZING turnout, and for helping us serve quality meals to our hungry guests!
