End-of-the-week report

Reporting from the open dock door of CRC while having an iced tea with lemon and a cigarette.

Between the three of us Chicks, we:

Bought Betsy a Mac, which she’s still learning how to use.

Issued invitations to the Open House for all the folks who helped us after the flood.

Set up the Giveaway.

Wrote two grants.

Gave away mattresses, furniture and air conditioners to flood survivors.

Almost balanced the books, still a little more work to do.

Tied the tomato plants to the trellis with knee-hi panty hose.

Dragged the flood goo-encrusted shelving to the parking lot and applied bleach.

Watched storm from dock door while having just a wee bit of wine (while holding strategic planning session, of course).

Swiffered the floor.

Entertained our N.C. furniture benefactors.

Ate barbecue.

A fairly productive week.

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.
