Another Year: Big Plans

If you've been following Operation Sleep Tight on Facebook, you'll know that we've have recently partnered with East Nashville Cooperative Ministry to provide sleeping bags to those whom this ministry serves.  

"ENCM envisions a Nashville where citizen’s needs—
spiritual, educational, economic, mental, physical, and emotional—
are holistically met and neighborhoods are enabled to thrive. 
We contribute to this vision with food, clothing and education."

Operation Sleep Tight is excited about this partnership and how God will provide to those in need. 

Josiah (8) sat down with the Director, Allen Murdock, last week to discuss plans, goals, & strategies.  One of the things Allen mentioned to Josiah is that by the partnership of both Operation Sleep Tight & ENCM, the two ministries are helping save lives of those living on the streets.

Currently, three families have partnered alongside Operation Sleep Tight.  The total of children working hard at raising support to purchase sleeping bags is 10!!  In only one year, God has strengthen Operation Sleep Tight in numbers!  We are overwhelmed at the work of His hands and the hearts of our children.  

The goal this winter is to provide 100+ sleeping bags to those in need.  Operation Sleep Tight has partnered with ENCM because although the children can not personally journey alongside those in need, ENCM has the resources and volunteers to meet the spiritual, physical, & emotional needs of those to whom they serve.  

ENCM will be hosting a huge Thanksgiving Dinner to the community on the 21st of November.  It is our desire to be able to have sleeping bags to pass out at that time.  We currently have 3 sleeping bags on hand. 

If you'd like to donate, you may do so through the "Donate" button at the top-right of this page. 

Reunion Christian Community has allowed us to use their Paypal account for donations.  With the growth of Operation Sleep Tight, we thought it best (for many reasons) to have our funds all in one place accountability.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at  

If you'd like to purchase the sleeping bags from Wal-Mart, you can find the ones that have worked the best for the homeless here:  

We can pick them up at the Wal-Mart on Dickerson Road (Nashville).  Or another option is shipping them to our home address.  Please email me for that information.  

Any amount of donation is greatly appreciated.  The 21st of November is only 9 days away and Operation Sleep Tight is in need of your help.  

Thank you for journeying alongside Operation Sleep Tight in providing "a warm bed this winter" to the homeless!
