We're excited to expand our efforts to Detroit this year, so not only will we help our Nashville neighbors, The Nashville Rescue Mission, but also the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries. The Nashville Rescue Mission sets a goal to collect 1,000 donated turkeys and foodstuffs required to throw their annual banquet, and the Detroit Mission has an increased need for canned goods especially during the holiday season. Help us provide a little help for the disadvantaged... 'Tis the season, after all, and we all need to be there for each other now more than ever.
Here's the deal: Anytime in the next two weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, drop off your donation (see options below) to the Nashville Rescue Mission (616 7th Avenue South, across the street from TMR headquarters, and entry by the American flag) or the Detroit Rescue Mission in the Cass Corridor (150 Stimson Street, Detroit, MI 48201) during regular business hours. Bring your donation receipt to the corresponding Third Man Records storefront and immediately receive 10% off your purchase, a free standard 7" of you choosing, PLUS be entered to win one of TWO big Thanksgiving Prize Packs (one for each location, detailed below).
One Prize Pack entry will be allotted for each donation of either:
a) One turkey (fresh or frozen), of sizable weight
— or —
b) Three of the following items:
- Cranberry Sauce
- Green Beans, Corn, Mixed Vegetables (#10 cans please)
- Corn Bread Mix
- Cheddar Cheese
- Dinner Rolls
- Dessert Pie
- Coffee Creamer
In planning your donation, please be mindful of what you'd like on YOUR Thanksgiving table, and shop accordingly.
Each Thanksgiving Prize Pack includes 3 extremely limited and exclusive items: a Jack White Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016 White Label Promo, and a special edition Total Chaos Iggy Pop Biography (with a limited edition, very exclusive 7" included), and a tri-color 7" to be revealed at a later date. The winners will be chosen at random on Monday. November 28th.
For those of you who would like to contribute but don't live in Michigan or Tennessee, feel free to give to the Nashville Mission directly online using our dedicated link. Your donation of $15 or more will automatically enter you into the Thanksgiving Prize Pack drawing.
We THANK YOU in advance for your generosity!
