Monthly Service Challenge

Each month, we will post a new mission as motivation for you to roll up your sleeves and get to work. Be sure to keep us in the loop by posting on social media using #TennesseeServes for a chance to be recognized as one of our Service Spotlights. Grab your friends, family, classmates or colleagues and join us as Tennessee Serves!


Tennessee Serves First Responders

Tennessee Serves First Responders

For our October service challenge, we are encouraging Tennesseans to serve our first responders. As a kickoff to this month’s challenge, the Office of the First Lady partnered with Operation Gratitude to assemble 500 care packages to distribute to police and firefighters. You can join us in this challenge by visiting your local stations to drop off essentials such as:
• Blankets
• Bottled water
• Energy drinks (Gatorade, Powerade, etc.)
• Hygiene products
• Meal supplement/protein bars
• Travel-size pain relief medicine (Advil, Tylenol, etc.)

Other ideas to consider:
• Baked goods
• Cards of appreciation
• Homecooked meal

We hope you will join us this month as we thank our first responders for their steadfast dedication and sacrificial work.
