Holiday Help-A-Thon

Posted by Third Man on 19 November 2014

For the next month, Third Man Records will be throwing a Holiday Help-a-Thon, and there are all sorts of ways to get involved and end 2014 feeling good about your contribution to society.

The Nashville Rescue Mission is dedicated to helping the hungry, homeless and hurting, and we are so honored to have such great neighbors. In 2013, they served over 669k meals to those in need, offered close to 35k hours of free education, and provided almost 278k nights of safe shelter to those who would otherwise spend the night on the street. Last holiday season, we did a Turkey drive in November, and this season we'd like to solidify the tradition of giving back with your help. This year, the Mission has expressed a special need for toys and clothes for children as well as food items for their Christmas dinner.

Bring us 3 of any of the following donation items (today through December 19th during normal business hours) and be entered to win the ultimate prize of 2014: a copy of EACH EXCLUSIVE RECORD we released in 2014. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. (Excludes Vault packages, of course.) —PLUS— receive 30% off your purchase (certain items excluded*) —OR— a free recording in our Record Booth at our Nashville storefront (a great gift for Mom!). If this doesn't get you in the giving spirit, we don't know what will. Here's what we need:

Choose 3:

  • Children's or Adult Clothing Item (New, please)
  • Children's or Adult Jacket 
  • Cold Weather Gear - Hats, Gloves, Scarves (New, please)
  • Children's Toy (New, please & not wrapped)
  • #10 sized Can of Green Beans
  • Large Bag of Onions 
  • Box/Bag of Stuffing Mix
  • #10 sized Can of Cranberry Sauce
  • Foil Turkey Pans + Aluminum Foil (Counts as 1 item)
  • Styrofoam Bowls + Divided Plates (Counts as 1 item)
  • Paper Napkins + Plasticware (Counts as 1 item)
  • Coffee 
  • Sugar + Shelf-Stable Creamer (Counts as 1 item)


The month of being good people, the whole lot of us, will end with another opportunity to give blood to the American Red Cross on December 19th. With the generosity of Third Man fans, we helped up to 96 people live to spend another holiday season with their loved ones, and we are thrilled to have the chance to double that number this month.

Like our previous blood drive, space is limited, and we won't let you leave a pound lighter with nothing to show for it. Donors will be granted one gift from beneath the Third Man Family Christmas tree, and trust us, there are no ugly sweaters, socks, or vacuum cleaners in there... every wrapped mystery gift will delight and excite! If you are eligible and would like to donate blood in our drive, please e-mail with your full name, address, phone number and age. Appointments will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis, and we cannot accommodate any walk-ins. 

We THANK YOU in advance for helping us help others. We have it so good having you all around.


NOTE: For those of you who would like to contribute but are out of town, feel free to donate directly to the Mission or the Red Cross, OR send us your donations in a package to the following address. Include your NAME, E-MAIL ADDRESS, and PHONE NUMBER in the package.
