Our man with stuff

We are open and we have stuff.

This is John Moore. He is our man with stuff. He didn’t want his photo taken, but I did it anyway. He deserves some recognition. John owns M&M Wholesale in Old Hickory. Normally, we buy basic personal hygiene and cleaning supplies from John for our giveaways. He sells us stuff for pennies on the dollar. Well, today, he brought us emergency hygiene kits, blankets, baby wipes, sheets and cleaning supplies at cost. At cost. John is a softie. That’s why we love him.

So we have the beginnings of stuff. We are starting to get referrals from other agencies. An 18-wheeler full of hygiene supplies. Someone offering baby blankets. Betsy and I are excited. We are functional, once again.

This afternoon we’re going over the warehouse on Omohundro to see what it looks like. I am a little fearful. I’ll let you know what we see. Don’t eat dinner first.

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.

One thought on “Our man with stuff

  1. Can you use the help of my two tween/teen daughters and me to help sort/package anything tomorrow/Saturday? We’re wanting to serve, but I want the environment to safe enough for the girls (8 & 12), while having them see them help strangers in need. My older daughter and I have muck-and-gut experience from Biloxi Katrina relief and Indiana/Illinois 2008 flood recovery help. I’m having trouble finding somewhere who can use children ready and willing to serve.

    Bless you for your efforts.
