Spread the Love – Metro Drug Coalition

February is the month of love and I am visiting a different community group every day to thank them for the wonderful work that they are doing.

On day 25 of #spreadthelove I visited the Metro Drug Coalition in Knoxville. They are committed to creating a healthy and safe community, free of substance abuse. They have various youth outreach programs for all ages in our schools, and they also provide SBIRT training in Knox County for health care providers, nurse practitioners, nurses, residents, and office managers.

If you need any help, please call the Tennessee Redline today at 1-800-889-9789 for free confidential information and referrals.

Go send them some love and tell them what a wonderful job they are doing in our community. And don’t forget to sign up for their 5K on April 6!

 

Spread the Love – Random Acts of Flowers

February is the month of love and I am visiting a different community group every day to thank them for the wonderful work that they are doing.

On day 24 of #spreadthelove I’m at Random Acts of Flowers in Knoxville. They reuse flowers from weddings, funerals, and event venues and bring them to people in health care facilities to spread hope, kindness, and happiness.

And they just celebrated 100,000 deliveries in Knoxville alone! Go send them some love and tell them what a wonderful job they are doing in our community. Got some vases, flowers, or time? Donate it to them and help them spread happiness and kindness!

Spread the Love – Beardsley Community Farm

February is the month of love and I am visiting a different community group every day to thank them for the wonderful work that they are doing.
Day 23 of #spreadthelove is at Beardsley Farm in Knoxville. Their 1,500 volunteers help provide food to local organizations to relief hunger, and you can also get food baskets through their workshare program.
Help them TODAY by coming to their volunteer work day starting at noon, and then go get FREE SEEDS at their SEED SWAP from 3-5 today. That’s all happening today despite the rain!

Spread the Love – Community Design Center

February is the month of love and I am visiting a different community group every day to thank them for the wonderful work that they are doing.

You may never have heard of East Tennessee Community Design Center, who I visited on Day 21 of #spreadthelove. But if you’ve been in a few public spaces in our area, like Change Center Knoxville, Emory Valley Center, and many others, then you have benefited from their work: professional design & planning services to improve life & work in East Tennessee.

What a great mission! Go send them some love on Facebook or Twitter and let them know what a good job they have done in the buildings they helped bring to life!

This cute flower girl column ended up at #BenAtchleyStateVeteransHome in #Knoxville . They did not allow photos or videos so I can’t share anything else with you, but the #caregivers (and probably the #veterans as well) clearly enjoyed this cheerful cutie.

Show them your #support for the wonderful work they are doing – send them messages, cards, or just visit a vet (or anyone, really) in your local #nursinghome!

And don’t forget to tell me about your favorite non-profit so that I can visit them and #spreadthelove there!
