Tent City

An annual drive to meet the needs of the homeless in our community

Thanks for making this event awesome! We'll do it again next year!

"For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home."

Matthew 25:35

Tent City, an outreach partnership with YAIPak, was started by students at Hilldale in 2019, to help meet the needs of the homeless in our community.

We host an annual drive in order to collect resources for YAIPak to distribute to the homeless around Clarksville and in locations locally known as "Tent City."

Please review the requested items listed below and bring in the item(s) during our drop-off time. You can also sign up to serve during our hours of operation and receive volunteer credit hours!
