2017 Hall of Trees

This year is our 14th “Hall of Trees” campaign benefiting Toys for Tots. This is a great way to market your organization’s name and at the same time raise money for a great cause. The trees have been a highlight of our season and give our elders who live here at Community Care a chance to share the holiday season with their loved ones and let them share in the joy of Christmas and giving. The deadline to register for this event is fast approaching and is November 1st, 2017. The trees will need to be up and decorated by November 30th and will be displayed until the conclusion of the Silent Auction on December 8th at 4 pm. Remember the more toys under your tree the better! All toys under the trees will be given to Toys for Tots; our residents will be using the money to go shopping for toys to be delivered. There will be recognition for participation and winning in the Daily News Journal and The Murfreesboro Post. We hope you will join us this Christmas season in sharing the gift of giving to the children of Rutherford County, making their Christmas especially blessed. If you are interested in helping us please contact a member of the Activities Department @ (615) 893-2624 or email us at nathanreed@rutherfordcountytn.gov or christywarren@rutherfordcountytn.gov and we will supply you with more details.

Welcomed With Open Arms

My name is Kelsey Nix and I am the MTSU student who has been doing my 300-hour internship with the Activities Department over the past few months here at CCRC. I wanted to take the time to sincerely say THANK YOU to the entire staff and to all of the residents here for welcoming me into your home with open arms! My mentors in the Activities Department have taught me so much and I could never thank them enough for their guidance and for the wisdom that they have shared with me during my time here. From each and every department that makes this home what it is, I have learned so much from all of you and I am humbled by your hard work and dedication. Not only have I developed professionally but I have also gained a greater appreciation for what a home truly can be. A home is made up of people who care for, love, and depend on one another, and CCRC is exactly that and I can honestly say I have seen it firsthand. I have met so many inspiring people along the way, and I will never forget my time here. This place is technically called a nursing home but I absolutely see it as a home first and foremost! It is a place filled with people who genuinely love life and who are thankful to be where they are; with the family and friends whom they love. Thank you CCRC for being the wonderful place you are! I promise I will come back to visit often!

Sincerely,
Kelsey Nix
