Not allowed

Old TVOh, joy. So I arrive at CRC World Headquarters this morning to find this. An old, giant, heavy TV plopped down by our front door. Gee, thanks! NOT.

So, without sounding too acerbic, here are the rules for donating items to the Community Resource Center:

  1. Ask first. We have telephones and we have e-mail. Please use them to ask if your donation is useful and can be distributed to other nonprofits. We are not the city dump.
  2. Bulk surplus inventory and basic necessities we purchase for our partners are our bread and butter. If you have surplus inventory of almost any type we will take it and find a use for it. If you have surplus inventory that involves personal care products, laundry detergent, or new underwear or socks, we will name our conference room after you.
  3. Please remember that if you dump stuff on our doorstep, we will have to pay to get rid of it and that upsets the Chicks. We are “no drama” kind of girls so you really don’t want to upset us.

To all the generous donors who provide useful items to CRC that enrich the lives of the tens of thousands of people in need we serve through our nonprofit partners, THANK YOU. To the person who dumped the TV on our doorstep when we weren’t looking…read the rules. Follow the rules.


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.
