And more volunteers

Now here’s an efficient volunteer. Sydney was asked to sort coloring books and what better way to do that but to get in the box for extra scrutiny. Sydney was one of a group of volunteers who spent their weekend at CRC helping us get ready for the giveaway.

Some of them were Betsy’s friends and others found our website and just wanted to help. Spending your time off in a somewhat cold warehouse going through boxes of gift items and basic necessities may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but we’re very glad these smiling faces wanted to give CRC a hand.

On a side note: Our nonprofit partners are pretty special, too. Today, we were the happy recipients of chocolates in personalized containers, homemade cookies, handmade ornaments, a “drunken” orange cake (oh, boy!) and a sack of sweet potatoes. Betsy and I are truly blessed.

About CRC Nashville

Who are we? We are literally two chicks - Catherine Mayhew and Betsy Everett, and a warehouse - the Community Resource Center (CRC). In short, CRC is a non-profit organization that provides household goods, furniture, and appliances to people in desperate need. Think of us as Robin Hoods – without the stealing. Catherine is a former journalist and Betsy is a marketing chick. We are both devoted to acquiring stuff – good stuff, no junk – because that’s what our most fragile citizens deserve. If you have metal desks, televisions that don’t work or underwear you don’t want anymore, don’t give it to us. We’ll sneer at you. If you are companies that have excess primo stuff like furniture in good condition, school supplies, personal hygiene items or pretty much anything else, we’ll be your new best friends.
