"I don't think anyone who has watched the news the last few days can go to sleep at night without having your heart just bleed," says Faith Hill. "Tim (McGraw, her husband) and I both knew that we had to do something. We just contacted the American Red Cross and said, 'What can we do? What can we bring?'"
The Red Cross gave Faith a list of specifics, for instance: 1,000 toys for children; 500 socks for children, size small, medium and large; T-shirts for men, all sizes, 500 of each; diapers and feminine products and baby powders and food.
"We got three semis and our bus and 8 [o'clock] Saturday morning we started making phone calls to close friends and family," says Faith. "We were able to do a major attack on the city of Nashville in one day and it was just mind-blowing how the community came together."
