Attitude

It’s everything, isn’t it? If we didn’t know it before the flood, we’ve learned that fact since. I was reminded of it when Rick Freeman came to the warehouse last week. This is the happiest guy I have ever met, flood or not. Here he is with his case manager, Olivia Bolden. His house in Pennington Bend was a victim of the May deluge. He came to the warehouse for a new mattress set and was absolutely giddy with excitement to also find a new leather chair and some decorative items for his rebuilt home. He was particularly happy to find a metal wall sculpture of ginko leaves. “You know they’re good luck, right?” he asked. Rick Freeman thinks, even with a house that saw five feet of water rush through it, he’s lucky. Attitude is everything.

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.
