RUTHERFORD COUNTY, TN.—Nov 1, 2021: America’s Thrift Stores announces a partnership with Rutherford County Tennessee and Mayor Bill Ketron to expand their diversion efforts from landfills, all to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
“The benefits of this partnership are far-reaching,” said Ketron. “America’s Thrift Stores’ presence in our County supports our waste reduction efforts, while giving back to the community.”
Not only does the push to donate items at the America’s Thrift Stores donation centers help keep items out of landfills in Rutherford County, but these donations also benefit Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee. Since its beginning, America’s Thrift Stores has operated with a local charity as the company’s local benefiting partner. Every donation made to America’s Thrift Stores in the middle Tennessee area results in a contribution to Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee. Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee is an independent, 501c3 nonprofit that grants life-changing wishes to children with critical illnesses in the middle Tennessee area.
Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee grants wishes in 38 counties of the middle Tennessee area, and the nonprofit has granted more than 130 wishes in the last fiscal year. Headquartered in Nashville and locally governed by a Board of Directors, Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee is one of 60 federated chapters of the Make-A-Wish® Foundation of America, the world’s largest wish-granting organization.
