Donelson Non-Profit News – February 2020
I recently enjoyed my visit with Community Options, a non-profit supporting people with disabilities for over 30 years. They’re located here in District 15 and do great work to ensure our neighbors with disabilities have affordable housing and the care they need. Thanks to Executive Director Meika McClendon for the time spent with me and also giving me a tour of one of their homes. Please visit their website above to learn more about them and how you can get involved.
I’m excited to share there will be a public art piece installed at the Briley Parkway / Lebanon Pike site of The Donelson Gateway Project. Thanks to Metro Arts THRIVE program, Brian Somerville will receive funding to create an art piece to display on site. It will be temporary (for about a year) and then we will find a permanent home somewhere indoors. As part of the process, community engagement is required and so there will be two meetings to provide an opportunity to learn more and provide input. That will help make it an even more meaningful art piece that will create deeper appreciation by everyone in the community. I look forward to seeing you either Tuesday, February 11 or Thursday, February 27, both at 6:30pm at the Donelson Library.
