  • Linda Goldberg from the Murfreesboro volunteer group stopped by the office on Thursday with bags of food kits for our survivors.
  • Thursday’s staff meeting was full of surprises as the team found out that we were able to move our two part-time workers to full time for the rest of the fiscal year, an exploiter will be providing us with a new vehicle as a good faith gesture, and we have  funds to purchases some tools to help us serve our volunteers and survivors more effectively. .

As the spring and summer months continue on we will be having a lot of activity around the office and lots of presentations and events so stay tuned to our website, newsletters, and social media for updates.
