A new fundraising campaign called Nourish the Heart seeks to support work of the Food Pharmacy at Nashville General Hospital by raising donations that will be matched dollar to dollar by companies and organizations like News Channel 5, the Scripps Howard Foundation, Tony Giarratana of Giarratana LLC, John Elridge of E3 Construction Services LLC and Harpeth Hills Church of Christ. The campaign also honors Reverend Enoch Fuzz for his decades of community service.
Following his public announcement of late stage cancer, Reverend Fuzz responded to every inquiry to aid him with these words: “I am fine. Just pray for me. What I really need you to do is send money to the Nashville General Food Pharmacy – they are feeding thousands. That is what I need you to do!” Rev. Fuzz has been described as “a noted community activist and organizer with successful records of connecting individuals and organizations.”
Prior to his illness, Rev. Fuzz was working to distribute food boxes and other necessities to families affected by the storms, and providing assistance in any way needed to aid those impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
“Rev. Fuzz has also been an active board member of the Nashville General Hospital Foundation for over 15 years and supports the work of this hospital wholeheartedly. It was through his connections in the community and his innovative spirit that our food delivery program has provided more than 57,000 meals to thousands of people since March 1st of this year,” shared NGH Foundation Board Chair Woody Wellborn.
A home delivery from the NGH Food Pharmacy will provide those facing food insecurity with a tote full of shelf-stable items and fresh produce for more than 15 meals. The tote costs $25 to assemble. To give, visit News Channel 5 – Nourish the Heart. Checks may also be mailed to NGH Foundation, 1818 Albion Street, Nashville, TN 37208. Thank you.
