What Christmas looks like

We don’t often brag on ourselves, but we got the  nicest letter from the Mental Health Cooperative and thought we’d share part of it.

Evelyn Yeargin, the director of advocacy, writes:

“The holiday gifts the Community Resource Center donated to Mental Health Cooperative’s consumers serviced around 200-300 consumers. MHC staff was very happy to wrap those items and give them out. Some consumers came back and told us how they decorated their home, and how some of them saved their gift to open at Christmas because this was the only gift they received. All of the children’s gifts ensured bright eyes because they had presents to open as well. You provided warm clothing for our homeless consumers. Your generosity has been good for their self-esteem and is a direct positive in their recovery process.”

We don’t hear enough stories about what happens to the goods we provide our nonprofit partners. This letter just made our day.

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.
