NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Community Resource Center, a nonprofit that works to give hygiene products to those in need in the Nashville community, will host its casino-themed 'All in for Hygiene' fundraising event to raise money to buy supplies for those in need.

It will be a fun night filled with music, food, casino games, and a silent auction to celebrate all the CRC accomplished, especially while serving Middle Tennessee during the pandemic. The CRC said over the last two years it has become Middle Tennessee's only Hygiene Hub.

The CRC serves a million people in the Middle Tennessee area. Megan McGuire, the CRC director of partnerships, said this event was also put on because it is not talked about enough how many people are in need of items such as shampoo, soap, and feminine products.

"One and five Middle Tennesseans can't afford the products that we got right here," said McGuire. "These are all probably items that we used this morning without even thinking about it, and over 300,000 of our neighbors in Middle Tennessee can't afford these."

The event will be held Friday from 6:30 to 10 p.m. at Rocketown off of S. Fourth Avenue. Tickets are still available online until 10 a.m. Friday, or you can buy a ticket at the door of the event.
