Rutherford County’s Community Baby Shower

United Way and the Rutherford County Health Department join together each year for the Community Baby Shower, where fellow residents of Rutherford County are asked to collect and donate essential baby items for expectant and new mothers. The Murfreesboro Water Resources Department is proud to serve as a collection site within the community for those wanting to donate to this special cause. Community Baby Shower (United Way)

This year, the United Way had a goal of 500 baby bags to be distributed to families in Rutherford and Cannon counties. Focusing on one of the United Way’s priority community issues, healthy beginnings, the bags contained essential baby supplies for a healthy start in life. We are proud to say that United Way of Rutherford and Canon Counties exceeded their goal!

"Stuff The Bus" School Supply Drive

Each summer, The Murfreesboro Water Resources Department partners with United Way to collect school supplies for at-risk students around the Rutherford County area. Murfreesboro residents, businesses, and City employees are urged to donate backpacks, Crayola crayons, color pencils, dry erase markers, glue sticks, scissors, and notebooks to help students start their school year off right!

For the 7th year, MWRD is participating as a donation site for those wanting to give. "Stuff The Bus" usually kicks-off at the beginning of summer in May and usually ends just in time for school at the end of July. Be on the look out for dates!
