“Give Thanks” Through The United Way (ROBERTSON COUNTY) To Help Families In Need This Thanksgiving
With the official start of fall this week, you might have started thinking about ways you can give back this holiday season. We are excited to share our plans for this year’s Give Thanks Day of Action and hope you will consider supporting it again this year.
Throughout October and early November, participating companies, groups, and organizations can collect supplies and assemble Give Thanks boxes filled with all the food needed for a traditional holiday meal, along with supplemental food to feed a family of four through the weekend. Give Thanks is a great opportunity to raise awareness, build community and bring a sense of volunteerism to your workplace, organization or social group.
There are several ways to get involved:
Create a box/boxes.
Click here to register as a sponsor and commit to the number of food boxes that you, your family, group, or workplace would like to make. Our goal is to have all food boxes collected at the United Way office (100 5th Avenue, Springfield) on November 10th and 11th and ready for distribution to the community by November 16th.
Run a collection drive.
Click here to let us know your site collection goal or send me an email so we can create a plan that works for you. Our goal is to have collected supplies to the United Way office (100 5th Avenue, Springfield) on November 10th and 11th and ready for distribution to the community by November 16th.

Stokes Brown Public Library Presents ‘To Make Our Voices Heard: Tennessee Women’s Fight for the Vote
Exhibition showcases events leading up to Tennessee’s ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution
Stokes Brown Public Library presents To Make Our Voices Heard: Tennessee Women’s Fight for the Vote, a new traveling exhibition, on display now at the library. The exhibition, created in partnership with the Tennessee State Museum and the Tennessee State Library and Archives, explores the history of the woman’s suffrage movement, Tennessee’s dramatic vote to ratify the 19th Amendment in 1920, and the years that followed.
“We are very excited to be included among the hosts of this exhibit which beautifully depicts key events and people involved in one of the most important political movements of the twentieth century. We hope that our display will be able to educate our patrons about the role Tennessee played in this important chapter in American history. –Michelle Adcock, Director of Stokes Brown Public Library
The exhibition is constructed of multiple dynamic panels, offering guests a touch-free experience of archival images, engaging stories and introductions to the leaders of the fight for and against the cause of woman’s suffrage. The stories begin by detailing the early challenges of racial and gender discrimination and continuing to the organization of African American and white women’s associations to encourage political engagement.
