HVAC Unit for Single Mom, Two Children (ages 9 and 3) and their Grandmother
A family who had been living for two years without heat inspired Operation Give Back and $2,000 was raised within one week for a new unit. Lee Company accepted the job and installed a new unit including labor costs on a job that would have normally cost more than $6,000.
New Roof for Disabled Woman
Dottie Dunaway had asked for help in replacing her roof for years. She owned the home but not the land which made her ineligible for a THDA Home Improvement loan. With every storm her home was damaged more and more, including the presence of mold, mildew, holes in ceiling and buckled floors. When they heard about her dilemma, Southeastern Roofing Company, ABC Supply Co., and GAF Co. donated all materials and labor for a new roof. The $1,200 raised was then used for interior repairs including flooring.
Help for Single Mom with Four Children
A mom found herself in a desperate situation and with the generous assistance of the La Vergne Firefighters Association, the home was cleaned and items including bedding, diapers, kitchen necessities, clothing, and food were donated. Additionally the community helped her catch up on her utility bills. The young mother was able to get her daycare voucher and has returned to work.
Blessing Boxes Come to LaVergne
It took a partnership between two churches, an international business, and a new foundation to bring a Blessing Box to LaVergne. The Blessing Box, located at 144 Bain Drive next to Skyline Exhibitor Source, was installed February 2022 and is already filled with items donated by the community including blankets and non-perishable food such as soups and crackers, snacks, and fruit cups.
Two more Blessing Boxes are planned, scheduled to open in March and April 2022.
Bedroom Set for Young Girl Orphaned by Covid
The Foundation partnered with the young uncle of a girl who lost both her mom and grandmother to Covid. Together the girl was presented with a new bedroom set, thanks in part to a generous donation by the Mattress King.
This is where we dream big! We are seeking donations to help those who fall between the cracks pay for utility bills, to bring a major art project to a city that could use some beautification, and listen to our community to see what other work needs done.
