Season of Giving: 100 Club of Nashville – Helps Those That Protect Us

leave a comment »

Tennessee: The Volunteer State    We are known as the Volunteer State. This well-deserved reputation is historical in nature and takes on numerous meanings when you think of Tennessee’s volunteerism. This reputation is evident here in Middle Tennessee as we are blessed with an abundance of goodwill from individuals and organizations alike that contribute their time and resources throughout the year.

Season of Giving    This time of year, as we pause to give thanks during Thanksgiving, celebrate the gift of life during Christmas, and reflect on memories of 2009 and the possibilities of the upcoming year, we naturally think of others and their needs and what we can do to help during the Season of Giving.  Our community’s volunteer organizations work hard to fill the food banks, gather clothing for the needy, promote coat drives, and collect care packages for our men and women that volunteer there lives in the protection of all of us back home in the United States.

Each year, I am proud to feature one of these worthy charitable organizations during the Season of Giving. This year, I wish to introduce you to and feature the 100 Club of Nashville.

Feature: 100 Club of Nashville    I was introduced to the fine work of this twenty-five year old charity a few years ago while working on a community affairs project here in Nashville. Since that time I have been equally impressed by the volunteerism of this police and fire benevolence fund. Under the guidance and leadership of Reed Trickett, the numerous volunteers and vendors are dedicated to protecting and helping those that protect all of us each and every day.

The 100 Club of Nashville accomplishes its task with members who donate $100 per year in dues. The 100 Club of Nashville has NO paid staff, NO paid or professional fundraisers, solicits its members entirely through volunteers, and limits its administrative costs to a small amount of printing and postage.

The Charity in Action: Police Officer Danita Marsh     Most recently the 100 Club of Nashville was called to service by assisting officer Danita Marsh who was shot multiple times and left paralyzed October 27, 2006 while assisting a victim of domestic violence.

Last year, the 100 Club of Nashville presented Marsh with the deed to her specially built residence during a Home Dedication Celebration at the North Precinct. Chief Ronal Serpas and 100 Club President Reed Trickett also awarded certificates and Metropolitan Police Department Chief’s Coins to representatives from a number of area businesses for donations of manpower and supplies to the home construction process. To learn more about Officer Marsh’s story, please visit the following news release, CLICK LINK.
