Murfreesboro Medical Clinic Employee Committee Donates over $23,000

Murfreesboro Medical Clinic’s (MMC) Employee Committee oversees fundraising events and donations for the MMC Foundation as part of its Hearts & Hands Program. Every year, MMC employees select local organizations that will benefit from the funds raised through the MMC Foundation. In 2022, MMC and its employees, in conjunction with the MMC Foundation, were proud to support three local charities through the Hearts & Hands Program.  They were the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Center, Stepping Stones Safe Haven, and A Soldier’s Child Foundation.

“Murfreesboro Medical Clinic is passionate about community involvement and giving back to this wonderful community that has so richly blessed us,” noted Joey Peay, MMC’s CEO and Chairman of the MMC Foundation. He continued, “This is why the Hearts & Hands initiative was started about 20 years ago. The formation of the MMC Foundation in 2020 has heightened our ability to impact our community. Through our efforts in 2022, we were pleased to donate $7,685 to each of the three chosen charities chosen.”

The Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Center specializes in a wide array of vital healing and protective services including 24/7 crisis support, emergency shelter, sexual assault advocacy including onsite medical exams, counseling, and legal/court advocacy to all current or past victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking free of charge. Their mission is simple: to PROTECT victims, PREVENT violence, and EMPOWER survivors.

Stepping Stones Safe Haven assists single women and women with children struggling with homelessness find their next step to health and wholeness. They believe that compassion, consideration, and consistency help ensure each guest is treated equally with fairness and grace. Stepping Stones Safe Haven partners with local churches to provide emergency shelter and then incorporate evidence-based tools to understand how they came to this situation and then guide them in a process to set goals.

A Soldier’s Child (ASC) Foundation serves children of fallen servicemen and women from all U.S. military branches. ASC acknowledges all deaths during active duty and any deaths post military service, due to service-related injuries or illnesses. This includes suicides from PTSD related deaths. ASC offers Love to the child left behind, Honor for the memory of the fallen and a Hope for the children to live a courageous life. They do this with yearly birthday celebrations, summer camps, mentorship programs, and facilitating in secondary/college scholarships.
