One of our navigators shared this poignant photo with us earlier this week and I knew it was meant for our July 4th post. It shows DeWayne still in his Junk King shirt just home from work standing at the water’s edge holding his grandson’s hand. To me it embodies ‘Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness’.

Junk King of Nashville wishes you all a safe holiday spent with loved ones while enjoying this beautiful land of ours.

Happy Thanksgiving From Junk King of Nashville

Wishing folks in the U.S.A. a Happy Thanksgiving, wishing Canadians a Happy Thursday, and wishing a Happy Hanukkah/Chanukah to those celebrating. Hopefully all are with friends and loved ones and able to enjoy the day. Safe travels to those on the road.

We are staying put. We will not be at work and neither will our employees. We will not be out shopping. We will be home watching parades and football, having a Monopoly marathon, continuing to teach our daughter the game of cribbage, cooking, more cooking, eating, possibly napping, and then more eating. We are thankful to be able to do what we do. We work long hours and cherish days like today.

There is still time to register for Safe Haven Family Shelter’s annual fundraiser the ‘Hike for the Homeless’.  If you are familiar with Safe Haven you know of its commitment to keeping families together during the hardest of times.  This past year they Safe Haven expanded its footprint by almost double to help even more families.  One of its largest fundraisers is this hike at Edwin Warner Park on Saturday, November 2.

You may register as a single participant, join an existing team, or create your own team.  The goal is to raise monies through pledges for your walk.  There are two trails in this beautiful park, 2.2 and 3.1 miles.  There are elevations and it is a workout, but the pace is your own.  You’ll be among families, school groups, civic groups, and business groups walking together with one goal.  As you progress you will learn humbling facts about the homeless in our city and country. Please consider joining.
