Project 615

WHAT IS PROJECT 615?  We are a philanthropic t-shirt & apparel company based in Nashville, TN. We operate by the bible verse Matthew 25:40. Jesus says, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for Me.”

PROJECT 615 T-SHIRTS & APPAREL:  One of our main objectives is to help restore those who are on the path of recovery from homelessness, addiction and mental illness. We work side by side with Set Free ministries in Nashville. Set Free houses 40+ men who are recovering from homelessness, drug/alcohol addiction, and mental illness. Most of our apparel benefits Set Free. The money given to Set Free is used to help house and rehabilitate the lives of these men. Since beginning Project 615 in the fall of 2010, we have been able to donate more than $55,000 to Set Free.

PROJECT 615 PRINT SHOP: Project 615 is also a full service t-shirt and apparel company. We believe in empowering and transforming those who are on the path of recovery and turning them into better citizens of society and for God’s Kingdom. Project 615 hires men from Set Free ministries and trains them and gives them the skill of t-shirt making/screen printing. We provide custom t-shirt and apparel orders for any type of customer.

Some of our customers/clients include: Musicians, Churches, Organizations, Sports Teams, Schools, etc.

PROJECT 615 CAMPAIGNS: Project 615 campaigns help impact other world changing organizations. Project 615 will offer special edition t-shirts/apparel seasonally where we raise money to help impact those respective organizations.

OUR STORY:  Project 615 was first formed in the summer of 2010 after co-founders Derek Evans & Matt Blinco visited one of the nations largest homeless communities, Skid Row, in downtown Los Angeles, California.  Both Derek and Matt realized that they wanted to do something about the ever increasing homeless population locally back in Nashville. They decided to start Project 615 as a fundraising and awareness effort for the homeless.
