SHOW DOG- UNIVERSAL MUSIC NASHVILLE Country artist TRACE ADKINS made a stop in CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA this week to lend a helping hand to the URBAN MINISTRY CENTER, to benefit the city’s homeless population.
As part of a prize that the organization won in the MAXWELL HOUSE “Drops Of Good” program, CHARLOTTE’s URBAN MINISTRY CENTER received $50,000 towards renovations for their ministry program. ADKINS was already in town filming a NASCAR LEGENDS series for GREAT AMERICAN COUNTRY, so he chose to spend part of his day helping out the organization as well.
“Most of my adult life, except for the past 15 or 17 years, has been labor-intensive, blue-collar jobs,” said ADKINS. “I’ve missed that satisfaction of being able to look back on what I’ve done and have tangible proof that I put in a good day’s work. I still need that evidence that I’m making a difference.”
More than 200 people volunteered during the three days of renovations. “If (ADKINS) takes anything from this day, I hope it’s that there are a lot of people in this country who need help, and we appreciate it when people like him realize it and take the time to help,” said URBAN MINISTRY Exec. Dir. DALE MULLENNIX.
