Piece of cake

Gifts are not required when our nonprofit partners come to the warehouse for basic household necessities for their clients. But they are always appreciated.

A dab of frosting for Tim; the rest for the Chicks

Tim Mitchell from Progressive Directions has been a partner with CRC for many years. But Tim’s become more than a partner. He’s also a friend. When the Chicks first moved to our warehouse on Omohundro, Tim drove down from Clarksville to install our shelving. We’ve also borrowed Tim and his truck on occasion for pick-ups around town. He knows the Chicks have a sweet tooth so he’s all the time bringing us cookies and cupcakes and such.

So imagine our delight when Tim arrived at the warehouse yesterday with an entire chocolate cake! We should say here that Tim has conquered a few health issues in the last several years and chocolate cake is not on his approved list anymore. However, if you will notice in the photo, he “accidentally” got a little chocolate icing on his finger and, well, just had to remove it by licking it off. That’s okay, Tim. A little frosting isn’t going to hurt you and the Chicks took care of the other 99.9 percent.


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.
