What our partners say about us:

I volunteered to help unload kits and had an amazing day. It was so wonderful to see the residents come down and interact with the social workers as they picked up their kits. The gratitude and human kindness I witnessed yesterday will sustain me for a long time. It makes me proud to work for MDHA and grateful to have such incredible and generous partners like Community Resource Center and the Frist Foundation.

Fifty Forward

Partnering with CRC has been one of our greatest partnerships. When Covid 19 shut everything down 7 months ago, CRC came to our rescue. FiftyForward Bordeaux was able to pick up FREE items to share with members. The items became a lifeline for our members.

🚨 1 in 5 🚨

One in 5 students right here in Middle Tennessee struggles to afford their most basic needs.

🤯That's over 70,000 students in the CRC's seven county coverage area. 🤯

The CRC believes that ALL students deserve access to their most basic hygiene needs. That’s why we’re partnering with nine school districts across seven counties in Middle Tennessee to provide FREE hygiene assistance for students in need.

Our staff and volunteers are hard at work to ensure that EVERY student in our community can walk into their first day of school feeling clean, confident and ready to learn.

Already this summer, the CRC has packaged over 📦 5,000 hygiene kits 📦 and distributed an additional 🧼 50,000+ hygiene items 🧴 to support our local students and schools.

And we're not done yet.

🤝 Want to help? 🤝

You can give a student the gift of dignity with your donation to the CRC. All donations, no matter the size, ensure that we can purchase and provide the hygiene items our students and families need this school year.

❤️ Check out these goodies! ❤️

One of our FAVORITE parts of the day is when the Amazon delivery truck shows up in our parking lot. 🚛


Because it means amazing people like YOU sent hygiene items to us from our Amazon Wishlist!! 💌

Every day, our amazing community sends us the hygiene items we need to keep our shelves stocked for our neighbors in need. At a time when prices are high and supply is low, it is CRITICAL that the CRC continues to meet the hygiene needs of our community.

Giving the gift of hygiene couldn’t be easier — just click the Amazon Wishlist at the link in our bio and purchase any of the items on our Dignity List! Your donation is shipped straight to the CRC and goes right back out our doors to support neighbors experiencing hygiene insecurity.

Thank you to our community for filling our shelves (and our hearts) with love and dignity for our neighbors!! ❤️ We couldn’t do this work without you!

Words can't do justice to how grateful we are to you for your support of the CRC today. It's unbelievable to think that we can provide over 2,000 hygiene kits to students in need because of you.

But there's still one hour left.

There are roughly 600 students who still need our support. Can you help us reach this final goal so that we can provide a hygiene kit to EVERY student experiencing homelessness in Metro Schools?

Regardless of what happens with this final goal, please know that we are in awe of you. We are ending this day with the fullest of hearts for you: our advocates, our supporters, our heroes.

Friends, it is an honor to do this work together.

A middle school student being too embarrassed to talk to a friend because he hasn’t been able to brush his teeth

A high school student being too ashamed to participate in sports because she doesn’t have laundry detergent to wash her uniform

A mother having to make the difficult choice between paying rent, buying food, or sending her child to school in a clean set of clothes

A teacher, who barely makes enough to support her own family, buys deodorant and feminine hygiene products for her students to make sure their basic needs are met

Though critically important to health and human dignity, hygiene items are almost always overlooked when it comes to basic needs.

Friends: let’s make sure that ALL our students have access to these basic yet ESSENTIAL items.

Because everyone is worthy of being clean.

There’s just THREE hours left to support the CRC for this year’s Big Payback. Thanks to you, we’ve raised over $11,000, which provides 2,000 hygiene kits to students experiencing homelessness.

We can’t believe we’re saying this, but can you help us get to $15,000 by the end of the day?


We’ve got a dream - a dream that every single backpack that gets distributed by Metro School’s H.E.R.O. Program will have a hygiene kit included.

That’s more than 3,000 students who will receive the gift of hygiene and human dignity.

We’re asking you to help us make that dream a reality - not for us, but for the students and families who need your support.

We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again:

They say it takes a village to raise a child. Today, in these last few hours of the Big Payback, let’s be that village.
