Blessings from the flood

It’s been two years since the historic flood that devastated Nashville and Middle Tennessee, but blessings continue to come from the disaster. Our partner agency, The Ark Community Resource and Assistance Center, got one this week. The Ark has a variety of programs serving those in need in south Cheatham County. They operate a weekly food pantry, meals on wheels senior dining, offer emergency utility and rent assistance, referral services, clothing/household goods give-a-ways  and a slew of other things. The agency was an active player after the flood in helping survivors put their lives back together.

Well, good things happen to good people. The Kharis Foundation has awarded The Ark Community Resource and Assistance Center, Inc. with a $100,000.00 grant to purchase a new building. The foundation helped with funds for case management after the flood and that connection led to the grant.

If you’re in south Cheatham County, take a look at their blog and try to lend a hand any way you can.


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.
