An affiliate of the American Independent Business Alliance, Locally Owned Murfreesboro was formed in March 2015 after local business owner Gretchen Bilbro and downtown resident Leslie Russell Yost attended an event in Nashville where a representative from the AMIBA spoke about the national organization.

AMIBA’s mission of helping communities and local businesses thrive resonated with the pair. They then recruited the original board — Roxann Covington, Cheryl Lisi and Michelle Willard — to help organize a local AMIBA affiliate for Murfreesboro.

From there they recruited charter members and developed a mission.

That’s how Locally Owned Murfreesboro became an organization of independent local business owners dedicated to promoting the benefits of shopping locally to the community and building a stronger local economy by joining together.

LOM’s three main focus areas are collective marketing, providing a voice to represent local businesses to the government and media and networking and referrals.

The Gr8t Chase devotes its energy to passionately advocating for individuals who have found themselves in need of hope, compassion and financial support as they are battling a life threatening disease – cancer.

Cancer isn’t seasonal, and it does not discriminate. Seven children EACH DAY will die of cancer. The death of a child is one of the most traumatic events a family might face leaving them financially and emotionally depleted. They seek your help to relieve some of their burdens.

A letter about Chase: 

Friend,

Chase was diagnosed with Burkitt’s Lymphoma two days after his tenth birthday. He battled cancer for almost eight months before succumbing to the disease.

Chase was like the sun: Brilliant, radiant, and able to light up the world. He was a rare soul who found caring and loving others an easy priority. Throughout his fight, he still put others needs and wants before his own.

When we was asked by the Make-A-Wish foundation what would he like to have or do, he asked for new gym equipment for his school, rather than anything for himself.

At the end, he didn’t fear dying, he feared being forgotten.

Our goal is to continue his legacy by putting others first, helping where we can, and choosing hope in dark circumstances.

It is our goal to continue to raise awareness for childhood cancer while making it easier on those who live with that disruption of their lives. Helping ease the burden for those in the fight is exactly what Chase wanted to do.

Matthew 17:20 says, “And Jesus said unto them, because of your unbelief: verily I say unto you, if you have faith as a grain of a mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible to you.”

Chase had a way of leaving you with a mustard seed, and now, we will move mountains for him. It is time to have a “C” word that causes smiles, instead of fear; one that can’t be forgotten: The Gr8t Chase.

Gratefully Yours,

Jennifer Black Yeatts, Co-Founder (and mother of Chase)

The Salvation Army is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and meet human needs in His name without discrimination.

Their programs:

Homeless men and family back-to-work overnight (including Third Shift) sheltering program, called “Life Recovery Program;” life skills classes (English and Spanish); youth character building and discipleship programs including a music conservatory; visitation to homebound seniors and nursing homes in our county; educational family development programs; community dinner every night of the year and more.

Opportunities to serve ON SITE:

Volunteers are needed to be mentors to the people in their Life Recovery Program. Options for both men, women and family units are available. This requires one point of contact per week (meal at the Salvation Army or elsewhere, phone call, email, etc) between the mentor (mentoring family) and the person/family in the Life Recovery program for at least the first ten weeks. At the completion of the program the relationship is agreed upon between the mentor and their mentee as to whether or not to continue. Many of their folks just need someone to hear their story and need a little encouragement. This is a great way to get involved directly with someone’s life in an environment with established boundaries and structure.

Volunteers are needed daily from 3:00-6:00pm to help serve dinner to an average of 70 people in the community each day.

Volunteers are needed on an ongoing basis in their Family Store at 125 S. Front Street, 615-624-8213, to help sort donations and support the mission of the store which is to fund the Life Recovery Sheltering program.

Opportunities to serve OFF SITE:

During the holidays they need a bell ringer coordinator who can work off site.

Donation Needs:

*Vegetables for the community meal–canned or fresh. This is their biggest need for the shelter and is ongoing.

*Hygiene items that they stuff and give away to the transient population they serve (shampoo, razors, shaving cream, feminine products, etc).

 *Baby diapers

Event Volunteers:

Their largest need for volunteers (particularly groups) is with bell ringing at one of their 30 red kettle locations in the county between Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. Lt. Monica Seiler, 615-895-7071, or salvationbellringers@gmail.com is the best way to schedule. Volunteers man a kettle location by ringing a bell and collecting donations in the red bucket (no money handling occurs by volunteer) and spreading Christmas hope and cheer as potential donors are greeted.

Volunteers are needed in the Christmas warehouse (our 3,500sq ft gym) with the Angel Tree Program which runs mid-November to mid-December. Volunteers help sort gifts making sure they make it to the donor’s designated child and family. Teresa Olson, 615-895-7071 or teresa_olson@uss.salvationarmy.org is the contact person.

Volunteers are needed early December to help stuff about 1,500 Christmas gifts for seniors in nursing homes that are individually visited and distributed. Lt. Monica Seiler is the contact for this at 615-895-7071 or monica_seiler@uss.salvationarmy.org

How to volunteer:

Contact Teresa Olson at 615-895-7071 or Teresa_Olson@uss.salvationarmy.org and schedule a time to visit with her and complete a volunteer application. The potential volunteer can also view volunteer job descriptions, tour their campus and find a match with something they are passionate about.

To work directly with children volunteers must complete Safe From Harm, a child abusive prevention, training provided on-site and have a background check completed before beginning.

To volunteer at the Family Store Mark Sheridan (manager) can be contacted at 615-624-8213. The majority of court ordered volunteers serve there.

They have joined hands with local Churches/Businesses/Schools and other community partners to help supply foster children and at-risk children of Rutherford County with those needs that Dept. of Children Services and Resource families cannot adequately provide.

Their mission is to provide Rutherford County foster children, as they enter custody, with age and gender appropriate personal hygiene items, school related supplies and clothes as needed through the Shepherd’s Supply Closet and their community partners.

They hold monthly meetings which consists of members of the RCFPA, Dept. of Children Services, Church partners, other non-profit organizations and any other community partners identified as important to their mission. During these meeting they provide mandatory training for foster parents and free childcare for their children.

They supply and maintain the Shepherd’s Supply Clothing Closet which is available to all Foster families and Dept. of Children Services employees upon request, free of charge. This includes a supply of We Care Bags at the Dept. Children’s Services office. The “We Care” Bags are given to children as the enter state custody.

*A school supply drive-We strive to provide all the school age children that come into State custody in Rutherford County (regardless of the time of year) with new backpack full of school supplies. We follow the “Rutherford County” school supply list per grade. Ex: Backpack, #2 pencils, crayons, etc.

*We Care, about your Hair! Drive- Ask for donations of new brushes, combs, shampoo (adult, baby, and kid), conditioner, hair gel, & hair ties.
