Greenhouse Ministries is excited to host one of the Murfreesboro National Night Out Against Crime events on Aug. 2, from 4-7 p.m. The event will be held on Greenhouse Ministries' property at 309 S Spring Street.
National Night Out is celebrated to "take back the community" and to generate support and participation on local anti-crime efforts. Greenhouse Ministries will host one of many locations and their celebrations will include food and drinks, games, activities, music, visits from local police and exhibits from community organizations. All of this is done for people to learn about their neighbors in order to promote safety and wellness.
Greenhouse Ministries Director of Operations, Julie Young said, "We are excited for this event because it brings together the neighborhoods surrounding Greenhouse Ministries' location. It is a wonderful opportunity for our neighbors to come together in a fun, block party style atmosphere."
Greenhouse Ministries is a nonprofit organization that offers a holistic approach to helping people. Greenhouse Ministries offers to help, educate and connect. Greenhouse helps by providing food, clothes, toiletries, household items, legal clinic, nursing clinic, and much more. Greenhouse educates by offering classes from budgeting to GED tutoring. Greenhouse connects by connecting clients with jobs, housing and other resources. Greenhouse was co-founded by Cliff and Jane Sharp in 1999 after the couple worked for the local pregnancy center and had a calling to serve those in need. Seventeen years later, Greenhouse Ministries has thrived and acquires donations of food, furniture and clothing every day, and every day the organization provides those items for individuals and families in need. Built on Christian principles, the motto of Greenhouse is "planting hope in the 'Boro," and the organization strives to help clients go from needing to giving back.
