Trace Adkins Helps Launch "Drops Of Good" Program
Trace Adkins is promoting volunteerism by example. The singer was in Charlotte, North Carolina Tuesday to participate in a rehab project in association with the "Drops of Good" campaign. "The Charlotte Observer" says Trace tackled a number of jobs, including painting, gardening, and carpentry work. He said it reminded him of his days before becoming a country star, explaining that prior to his music career his professional life had been filled with "labor-intensive, blue-collar jobs." Trace added that he draws satisfaction from seeing "tangible proof" that he's "put in a good day's work," which is something that's lacking in his current occupation.
Charlotte's Urban Ministry Center was the launch project for "Drops of Good," a Maxwell House-sponsored program that is promoting volunteerism while renovating and revitalizing community centers across the country. Adkins is a "Drops of Good" spokesman.
