Check out our Advent Calendars for the holiday season!
At YAIPak Outreach everything starts with the extravagant love of Christ. God pursues each one of us to redefine our identity, restore our dignity, and remind us how deeply we are loved. Our homeless friends have been lost and forgotten by the world, but they are important. We are here to extravagantly love them the same way we’ve been loved by God. Our warehouse is located at 210 S. Second Street. We are open for donations and volunteers on Mondays from 9 AM until 12 PM and Thursdays from 5 PM until 8 PM.
May the holiday spirit be with you and your family today and throughout the New Year.
from all of us at YAIPak Outreach!

Merry Christmas came early to the YAIPak warehouse! We were absolutely blown away when sweet friends contacted us that the Lord had given them a new assignment in life and now wanted to bless YAIPak Outreach with things. Little did we know how BIG THAT BLESSING WAS ABOUT TO BE. IT WAS HUGE. We received a box truck! We are Rejoicing that the next step of being able to stay mobile and effective just took a big leap. We are going to be able to move more, impact more, and show the extravagant Love of God even more! We are so incredibly grateful to David & Sandy! May your new journey be filled with the blessings of heaven for your kindness!!!
Thank you to Our Thrift Store in Franklin, Tennessee, SergioRod Designs for detailing it, and OneGenAway for standing with us in prayer!
YAIPak Outreach in the Community
This year's YAIPak Outreach Operation Turkey Drop was a huge success filled with lots of fun, lots of joy, hard work, and loads of thanksgiving for the opportunity to impact precious lives. Through the efforts of extraordinary partners, we were able to impact 883 children in need and their families with 340 of those families being a veteran in need.
Operation Turkey Drop started for YAIPak Outreach three years ago when we received a call from the school system asking to help 21 children who otherwise would not receive Thanksgiving meals. Through our work with each school social worker, we have been able to impact the lives of those children and their families who otherwise would absolutely not receive a Thanksgiving turkey or the accompanying sides. It was the same situation for our partners from Veteran Administration, and we were able to make sure that veterans who are struggling, who may have just got into housing, who may be having their first Thanksgiving in their own home, had a turkey with all the trimmings.
Havens Thompson Group was like rocket fuel to the program. Toniann Thompson had a vision to start feeding years ago. Sandy Hester and Toniann championed the cause. They are some of the hardest working women we have had the privilege to serve alongside. THANK YOU!
THANK YOU to ALL the DRIVERS and DONORS who helped push it over the top. The kindness shown from Mike & Cody Jackson of Hilltop Grocery in making sure all of the turkeys and fixings were delivered to the warehouse on time. We love you guys! THANK YOU!
It was a perfect time for Wounded Warrior Project to volunteer. Thank you for jumping in, taking action to haul heavy carts, and get creative with the packing! Well done Sirs! It’s a privilege to serve alongside you! Heroes helping heroes! THANK YOU!
Thank you to the Ft. Campbell Fire and Emergency for delivering well over 140 turkeys! You give so much to our community in your service and now went above and beyond the call of duty. THANK YOU!
Last but not least, the Clarksville Police Department! Officer Chad, Deputy Chief Ty, and your team added the finishing touches to an amazing day! Thank you for your service to our city and serving our neighbors! THANK YOU!
There’s so many to thank - every volunteer who worked so hard for weeks packing, sorting, and organizing. May you be richly blessed.
To the YAI Team, thank you for your unselfishness to stay long hours and have cereal for dinner because the days were so long. Your love for people out shines the stars! Thank you!
