GCA News writer Gabrielle Cintorino recently wrote an article about Brian Early, one of my neighbors in Donelson Hills, who started an inspiring non-profit organization in 2010 called Think 2 Change that was the result of his own abuse growing up. Brian has inspired many young people through sharing his own experiences. For more about Brian and his efforts and information on his speaking opportunities, visit his website here.
I recently learned about a non-profit organization on the border of the 15th District over on Spence Lane, The Native American Indian Association of Tennessee. NAIA is a service agency for Native Americans in Tennessee that offers many benefits and services. They are working on an exciting project of building a new home, museum and and cultural center.
Project Warm Wishes is an initiative led by Donelson neighbor Donna Marsh to help provide hats, scarves, gloves and more to the homeless and those that need it the most during the Christmas Season. For more information and to donate, visit their Facebook page for a link.
Hip Donelson has been a strong supporter of the Metro Police Christmas Charities for the past few years and are asking for your help by donating a new stuffed animal to the drop off locations of Treasure’s Consignment, Ace Hardware, Ruby’s Kitchen and FiftyForward Donelson Station. This annual initiative is an incredible way to give back and was started in 1961 by Donelson’s own Joe Casey, former Police Chief.
