Third Man Records has partnered with YWCA Nashville & Middle Tennessee and the non-profit’s 2616 Resale Boutique for an expanded "Good Neighbor Day." From October 22nd through 28th (EXTENDED TO NOVEMBER 4th!), Third Man Records will collect women's jeans to donate to 2616 Resale Boutique, located in the heart of East Nashville. During the month of December, 2616 Resale Boutique will “resell” those donated jeans. All proceeds benefit YWCA programs, including its domestic violence shelter and prevention services. Third Man Records has taken a particular interest in the YWCA's MEND Nashville program, an innovative, primary prevention initiative dedicated to ending violence against women and girls by engaging and educating men and boys. Watch the powerful "We are the Lions" video the YWCA produced to launch the campaign in July below...
For this "Denim Drive," Third Man Records requests high quality, gently used denim pieces. Each donated pair grants the donor the chance to win a "Blue Vinyl Exclusive Instant Record Collection," containing limited pressings of some of the label's most popular releases from Jack White, The 184.108.40.206's, The Racontwoers, and more. Donations will be collected in person at Third Man Records' Nashville storefront (623 7th Avenue South), and can also be mailed in. Mailed contributions must arrive by October 28th to be eligible for the chance to win the Instant Record Collection. (Ship donations to 623 7th Avenue South, Nashville, TN 37203, attn: DENIM DRIVE.)
"Denim Drive" donations will be stamped as having originated from a Third Man fan before making their way to 2616 Resale Boutique for sale a few weeks after the drive ends. Acceptable donations should be clean, gently used (no destroyed denim, please), and preferably of a high original quality and current style.
“Good Neighbor Days” take place during the last Saturday of each month at Third Man Record’s storefront, with 10% of the day's sales donated to a local non-profit.
