Community Love

We are so grateful to our Nashville community for their continual support, especially when they surprise us with their generosity. Below are a few stories of some of our friends who recently showed us extra special love right in our own neighborhood.

Belmont University presents a annual award called the "John Williams Heart of Belmont Award," which recognizes a student who demonstrated "advocacy for change that enhances the lives of those in the community." The recipient of the award splits their $500 check with a charity of her/his choice. This year, the award when to Hannah Delap, who chose Thistle Farms as her charity. Cynthia went to the awards ceremony and accepted the check on behalf of Thistle Farms. Thank you so much, Hannah!

A group of women from St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Franklin participated in the Country Music Half Marathon. Along with sponsorships from friends, families and other church groups, the ladies ran/walked (using the catchy tag line "Miles for Magdalene") and raised almost $3,000 for our organization. You are all truly amazing!

Just down the street from the Thistle Farms sales and manufacturing building, The Real Life Players presented their teen owned & operated play, Stranded, at the Darkhorse Theatre. Thistle Farms was chosen as one of three charities to receive the funds from the door of the three-night play. With thanks to those who went to the performances and voted for us, we received the most amount of votes, with an impressive 44%! What a blessing.

Are you a Thistle Farms community supporter? If so, tell us how! We love to see our friends show us love and we hope to give love right back. Email to share your story of generosity.
