With Movers for Moms wrapping up, it is time to announce our results! In our first year, we were able to collect 3,500 items and $1500 for the YWCA of Middle Tennessee and Bridges Domestic Violence Center. We are completely overjoyed by the support of the community and business partners, as our collection goal for 2014 was 1000 items.
So many women arrive at these shelters with nothing due to having to leave their homes at a moment’s notice. It is a wonderful feeling to be able to give these women items many people take for granted, and give them a feeling of a fresh start.
This year we raised items through a kick off party at the Bunganut Pig with live music and raffles, our first annual Movers for Moms 5K, and community partners and businesses. Needless to say, we had fun while supporting this great cause. We collected items such as sheets, towels, personal care items, cleaning supplies, and snacks for the shelters.
We could not have done this without our amazing partners. We would like to thank Women ‘n’ Wine Social Group, Sun and Ski Sports, K-Love, Chick-fil-A at Coolsprings Galleria, Twine Graphic Design, and all of our community partners! We look forward to an even more successful 2015!
