There’s a famous burger chain in California called In-N-Out. The name represents a quick turn-around, in this case for apparently insanely good burgers.

We kind of like to think of ourselves as the In-N-Out of the nonprofit material distribution business. Quick. Whatever it is, if it’s sitting in our warehouse it’s not being put to a good use.

Just an example. Kirkland’s donated some beautiful dining room tables and fancy vanities to us. Sweet.

Welcome Home Ministries, which serves men getting out of prison and learning to become productive citizens, picked up one of the vanities and two dining room tables for their residential homes.

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.
