We have Garth Brooks’ t-shirts

Aside from the fact that We Are Nashville, there’s a certain advantage to living in this town. And that is the fact that many successful musicians use Nashville as their business base. And they have t-shirts. In the case of Garth Brooks, lots of t-shirts.

So we get a call from Deanna Mosher, who works with Garth (if I may call him that) on merchandise. It appears that there a number of t-shirts he would like to donate to flood relief. We happily tell his people to come see our people at the warehouse.

That’s Deanna in the orange t-shirt. She brought her people and that was a good thing. Because they also brought a 53-foot semi loaded with boxes of t-shirts and sweatshirts. And they had to go back for more. How much fun is it to unload 30,000 or so t-shirts in 100-degree heat? Not much fun, but Deanna’s crew made the best of it. So we just thought we should immortalize the whole project by snapping a photo.

These t-shirts will go to flood victims. But they will also go to homeless people, at-risk youth, people living at or below the poverty line and others who rarely see new clothing, much less something from Garth Brooks.

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.
