First Quarter Service Event 2022
Our first quarter event for 2022 was a tour of the Hospitality HUB to coincide with our month-long blanket donation drive. The Hospitality Hub has been working to end homelessness in Memphis since 2007. Their new Hub Campus, which will provide expanded services, a day plaza and a women’s shelter, will be opening July 2022 at 590 Washington Ave. This women’s shelter will be the region’s first barrier-free trauma-informed emergency shelter for women. The building fills a gap in services that’s been in our city for over 20 years. Right now, 37% of the homeless population are women, while only 6% of the shelter beds are for women. While on our tour, we learned that the HUB will provide various amenities such as a hair and nail salon. play room for the children, multiple outdoor areas for exercising and recreational purposes, along with a meditation room. We are excited to continue our advocacy of this impactful facility!
Second Quarter Service Event 2019
Our second quarter service event for 2019 was at Memphis Union Mission. Every day, Memphis Union Mission provides 3 meals and a place to sleep for the city's less fortunate. For this event, we served dinner to the shelter's overnight guests, made some additional plates for late arrivals, and donated large cans of vegetables for future meals.
First Quarter Service Event 2019
Our first quarter service event for 2019 took place at Ronald McDonald House. The Ronald McDonald House is a 'home away from home' for St. Jude patients and their families. All families are able to stay there free of charge. For the event, we prepared a taco bar buffet for the families to eat for dinner. We got to flex our culinary skills and met a good number of families who were there while their children are in treatment.
Fish and Associates Christmas Party - December 6, 2018
We held our annual Christmas Party and Toy Drive on December 6th at the Crosstown Concourse. We had a toy collection for the children serviced by Friends for Life, music by Blind Mississippi Morris, and catering by Next Door American Eatery.
Third Quarter Service Event - 9/10/18
For our 3rd quarter service event, we chose to serve dinner at the Dorothy Day House for their Monday Night Meal series. Dorothy Day House is a non-profit organization that keeps homeless families together and helps them get back on their feet. Their Monday Night Meal allows for the families to take the night off from cooking and meet members of the community who bring in meals for them. The entire Fish and Associates office provided the meal and several of our clients attended the event as well and brought along donations for the home. We had a fantastic time and learned a lot about the Dorothy Day House and spent a couple hours being part of the Dorothy Day family.
