2024 IMPACT Charity Project – Harvest Hands: Humphreys Street

April 8, 2024 | 7:30AM – 2:00PM
This event is sold out.

Every year the Connex Foundation uses the talent and resources of multi-site facilities management professionals to support a non-profit organization in the maintenance and repair of their facility. Connex Foundation believes removing the facility maintenance and repair burden allows non-profits to effectively carry out their mission to support and impact their local community.

This year the Connex Foundation is supporting Humphreys Street in South Nashville, TN. Harvest Hands: Humphreys Street provides safe, caring, supportive environments where teens can safely wrestle with big issues, develop critical coping skills and plan for their futures. Through creating local positive economic opportunities, teaching money management and employment skills, and cultivating a culture of mentoring, they work to provide pathways out of poverty for the youth of Middle Tennessee.

Your registration fee supports this significant project, includes transportation, lunch, and Connex Foundation swag.

Volunteers onsite will assist in painting, landscaping, fence repair, and more.  Please plan to wear suitable clothing and shoes for these activities.
