Hoopin’ and Hattin’ at HCA Community Day

If you look at the vast complex that is HCA headquarters in Nashville you would not immediately understand that inside there are a crazy bunch of party people just waiting to make their way to CRC World Headquarters for a bit of fun.

Every year, HCA sends its employees out into the community to do service projects for nonprofit agencies. The Chicks are always grateful that our board vice president, Willie Ford, is an HCA bigwig and he always brings fun people with him to sort inventory and assemble shelving paid for with an HCA grant.

But before we get to work, let’s try on some funny hats, shall we?

All right. That’s enough of that. Now let’s get to work.

O.K., that’s enough work for one day. Let’s watch Betsy fit into a child’s Halloween costume and Hula Hoop in the warehouse.

No, let’s really watch Betsy show off her hoop moves.

Thanks, Jeff, for the video. And thanks Willie, Gaye, Tirumala, Ben, Jeff, Sam and Lisa for whipping our warehouse into shape and for not being ashamed to wear a funny hat while you were doing it. The Chicks ♥ HCA!

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.
