MDHA

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.

❓Did you know that 1 in 4 students experience period poverty?

Every month, these students struggle to afford the period products they need to attend school, participate in sports, or even go on a walk outside with their friends.

In honor of #PeriodPovertyAwareness week, the CRC has partnered with @metroschools to provide 1,000 Summer Period Packs. These packs include 75 period products - enough to meet a student's period care needs for the entire summer break.

You can support this effort by making a donation at the link in our bio. For just $30, you can provide 4 Summer Period Packs to students in need!

Hygiene is HERE! 🤗

Each month, the CRC packs over 60 bulk hygiene orders for our nonprofit and school-based partners across Middle Tennessee. Our partners tell us which (and how much) products they need, and our incredible team of staff and VOLUNTEERS pack to order!

As a result, each partner receives over $2,000 worth of hygiene + household each month!

CHEERS! 🍻 The biggest hygiene packing event EVER in support of the CRC is happening this week! 11k Attendees at the Craft Brewers Conference gathered in Nashville this week to pack 3,500 Hygiene Kits (more than 125,000 hygiene items) at @musiccitycenter. So that’s something to drink to!

Like the CRC, advocating to provide basic needs for housing-insecure individuals hits home for @brewersassoc. Front-line hospitality workers—commonly categorized as ALICE (asset-limited, income-constrained, yet employed)—disproportionately experience housing insecurity, particularly since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you, @brewersassoc, for bringing awareness to this great need and making a difference in Middle TN this week!
