SPECIAL ARTICLE FOR THE GEARHEAD GAZZETTE
KIDNEY FOUNDATION NEEDS YOUR HELP!!!
The GAZZETTE recently got a special request, that we feel the GEARHEADS can possible help out with. The
request comes from Beverly Campbell, L.P.N., Kidney Car Campaign Coordinator for the National Kidney Foundation of
Middle-TN. Beverly wants all of us to know that the donated cars they receive, are taken to the ABC Auction House on the
2nd Thursday of each month for sale. The funds raised at the auction, are then are then placed into the funds that go to
help all the over 2000 LOCAL kidney dialysis & transplant patients. The Kidney Foundation lends aid to these folks for
medications, transportation, education for themselves and their families. They have on-going research projects also. This
all takes a lot of $$$$.
So you say “how can I help??” Well you can donate your old car or truck to them so they can take it to the auction.
Check with your tax preparer, but in most cases the donation is tax deductible.
THEY NEED MORE CARS TO MAKE THIS WORK!!!
One of the other factors here, is the need for more help has risen with the whole TENNCARE situation.
Come on…help them out, clean out your driveway or garage or backyard and let them have that old car to help
them out. They’re counting on us!!! Even if you don’t have a car to donate, send this out to everyone you know, and it will
hit some folks that can and will help out.
To help out, contact Beverly at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call her at 615-383-3887.
