NICE has partnered with the Community Resource Center to receive donations to help provide home essentials for our new neighbors as they go through the resettlement process. Necessities like cooking supplies, hygiene items, and cleaning supplies are critical to helping our new friends feel welcome and comfortable in their new home in Nashville.
“At the Community Resource Center, we provide basic essentials to our most vulnerable neighbors here in middle Tennessee, both in times of disaster and in seasons of ongoing need. When the Afghan resettlement process was starting, the team at NICE reached out to us to see if we had any capacity to partner together, particularly on the materials management side of things.
We get a call from the housing team at NICE when a family has moved from temporary into permanent housing. We find out how many people are in the family and what their needs are, and then we do sort of a version of supermarket sweep. We pack up everything that the family might need and add some extra where we can. – Megan McGuire, Director of Partnerships and Events, Community Resource Center
