Covered in sticky notes

The Chicks love to visit our partner agencies.  All our 90 nonprofit partners do such important work and it’s nice to get out in the field every once in awhile to see what they’re up to.

Hope 3So yesterday, Betsy and I visited the Hope Family Health Clinic in Westmoreland. The clinic provides medical care to the uninsured and under-insured. And Joey Foreman, the clinic’s chief compliance, development and information officer  (could you get a longer title, Joey?), took us on a tour. At every stop, he gave us a sticky note for each piece of furniture and other office equipment CRC donated to the clinic.

Turns out, we’ve pretty much furnished the place.

Hope 2The staff was incredibly gracious and grateful, but the Chicks are the ones who are blessed to be able to serve. What we do isn’t glamorous, but it is rewarding. We’re the supply line to the front lines of poverty.

Hope 1Thanks, Joey, for the tour and for making us feel so special. By the way, folks, if you want to see the real ways Hope changes the lives of the people it serves, take ten minutes and watch a video about their fantastic work.

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.
