BRENTWOOD, TN., It’s Backpack time again for the associates and employees of Crye-Leike, REALTORS.  For the eighth consecutive year, Crye-Leike REALTORS associates and employees are generously providing backpacks and school supplies for the children in Youth Villages’ care.


Crye-Leike Murfreesboro Broad Street Office Sales Associates and Project Captains Anne Henslee and Willie Mangrum recently kicked off the Youth Villages campaign at the July sales meeting.  They are encouraging their colleagues and the community to join in by donating school supplies and/or money to provide for the children’s needs as they head back to school.


“This year, our local goal is to provide 20 back packs loaded with school supplies through our local campaign,” said Henslee.  “We set the goal last year and were overwhelmed by the generosity of our agents, clients and caring people in the community.”


Youth Villages helps emotionally and behaviorally troubled children rebuild their lives and fulfill their dreams of living in a safe and nurturing environment. Their mission, to help children and families live successfully is at the heart of all Crye-Leike, REALTORS.  The company’s regional campaign will serve more than 400 children in Middle Tennessee.


“If anyone would like to participate they can call our office 615-895-9518 and we will fax a list of needed supplies,” said Mangrum.” Collection bins are available in our lobby located at 1139 NW Broad between Chef Wangs and Demo’s for anyone who would like to drop by with donations.”
