This is serious business (tee hee)

The Chicks get down to business on giveaway days. We serve more than 90 nonprofit agencies in Middle Tennessee with new basic household necessities for their clients in need.

So this is serious business, people Extremely serious.  Okay, we get sidetracked.

Who wouldn’t want to put on a silly witch hat if presented with the opportunity? Eva’s husband didn’t. He ran away to the other side of the warehouse. Party Pooper.

And then there are Judith Finn’s grandchildren, Ethan and Faith. Judith and her husband, John, run the Faith, Hope and Love Ministry. Her grandchildren often come to the giveaways so Betsy and I can completely slobber over them. “Where is the snake book?” Ethan asked me when he came through the door. “I want to read the snake book.” Oh, Lord. The snake book I read him last month. I gave it away. “Um,” I said, stalling for time. “Let’s go see what toys we have!” Kids are such suckers. Or maybe I’m the sucker. They play with stick horses and then get their own little chairs and individual Jack in the Boxes.

Ethan and Faith 2Okay. I’m officially the sucker. When Judith gets ready to leave I tell the kids the chairs and Jack in the Boxes are theirs to take home. I don’t want the snake book situation next month.



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.
