The city of McMinnville is building community awareness regarding local services by holding a Community Resources Day this coming Monday, Nov. 15, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. 

“We’ll have tables set up on the first floor of City Hall with various local organizations represented. People can come in, visit with them and learn more about what they offer,” said Katie Kemezis, community planner for the city of McMinnville. “This is a concerted effort by the city to connect residents with those services and raise awareness regarding what they offer.”

Community members are invited to drop in any time to speak with representatives from the nonprofits. Among those in attendance will be Warren County Senior Center, Caring Hearts United, Upper Cumberland Human Resource Agency, Warren County Emergency Food Bank, Families in Crisis and Warren County Meals on Wheels.

City departments and services will also be represented.

“The Fire Department will be available to talk about their smoke alarm program, and community members can sign up for free installation of a smoke alarm by Fire Department staff,” said Kemezis. “The Community Development Department will have staff available for property maintenance and building permit questions.”

Offering a Community Resources Day makes it easy for local residents to connect with and learn about several organizations at once instead of connecting to these organizations individually. Additionally, community members can also connect with organizations regarding volunteer opportunities. 

“Maybe you know of a family going through a rough patch or have an aging parent struggling with loneliness,” said McMinnville Police Department clerk Sarah Medley. “This is a great event to get know the resources and services available in our community to support local families.”

More information and an updated list of participating nonprofits can be found on the city’s Facebook page. Inquires can be made by calling 473-1204 between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
