Jay Cleveland | Assistant Director


Jay Cleveland is the assistant director at CRC. Jay is a graduate of Middle Tennessee State University with a degree in behavioral science. He is an expert in social media and it’s application in the nonprofit world and is enthusiastic about nonprofit management and development. He’s a loyal volunteer at both the Nashville Rescue Mission and the Oasis Center. Jay also understands the world of small nonprofits and enthusiastically WD-40’s the dumpster and vacuums the warehouse floor (actually he’s kind of compulsive about that).

What do we do?

CRC  is the supply line to the front lines of poverty.  CRC serves more than 90 nonprofit agencies, providing them with new household goods, bedding, kitchenware, cleaning supplies, clothing and personal hygiene items for their clients in need.  Our agencies represent a diverse client base including at-risk children, disadvantaged seniors, victims of domestic violence, refugees resettling in Middle Tennessee, the homeless, those battling addiction, those with mental and physical challenges and other people in desperate need.  Founded in 1985, CRC operates a 5,000 square-foot warehouse from which we distribute all of these items.

Who can we help?

We are here to partner with agencies who have their 501c3 paperwork and are serving populations that are in need.  We can help you meet your agencies goals and mission!  If you are interested in finding more information about how to become a Partner Agency with CRC, email Jay and he will set you up with an appointment to visit our warehouse and see first hand how we can impact your agency and clientele.
