Not why we do this, but a side benefit

We provide new stuff that poor people need and can’t afford. Maybe that should be our new 10-second elevator speech.

But a side benefit is that during the giveaways, we are sometimes presented with presents, food and Faith from our nonprofit partners. John Jo Finn and his wife, Judith, brought their granddaughter, Faith, to the giveaway yesterday. They run the Faith, Hope and Love Ministry. Betsy was in the office when the Finn’s arrived at the warehouse and I rushed in to say only this to her: “There is a baby in the warehouse.”

She practically ran me over getting out the door.

We are blessed that a major retailer provides us with gift items and we just happened to have a giant bunny on hand. It weighed more than Faith. But that cute little girl was just tickled by the bunny and by Betsy. Here is your moment of zen.

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.
