Community Anti-Litter Grant

Thanks to Judy Blevins, one of our faithful volunteers, MCCM recently received a “Community Anti-Litter Grant” provided by the Marion County Chamber of Commerce.

The proceeds of the grant are to be used to purchase a combination ashtray and trash receptacle to be placed at the entrance of the MCCM building.

George Jackson, our Treasurer, purchased the device and installed it in the proper location at the bottom of the entry ramp.

We need someone who will check on it periodically to empty the trash and, using the scoop provided, remove the cigarette butts from the ashtray.

Volunteer Team Needed

Our facility in Sequatchie needs a regular, thorough cleaning.

Currently, as time permits, our fantastic volunteers, unasked, do a great job keeping the floors swept, the carpets vacuumed and the bathroom cleaned.

Most days that we are open to serve clients we are so busy that we simply do not have time to clean thoroughly.

We are in need of one or more volunteers to form and to chair a Building Maintenance Committee which will coordinate1 the regular2 deep cleaning of MCCM.

The actual cleaning of the facility can be done by:

  • Church youth groups
  • Sunday school classes
  • Various other church groups
  • Service Clubs
  • etc.

You are limited only by your imagination!

If you are interested in forming this vitally needed committee for MCCM, please click HERE or send an email to:

1 Finding and scheduling groups to do the actual cleaning.
2 To be defined by the coordinator.
