Thistle Farms / Boys & Girls Clubs
"The kids. It’s those amazing children that make me want to serve," says Sherri Neal. She's been on the board of the Boys & Girls Clubs for more than seven years, and seeing the impact the organization has on Nashville's younger citizens only fuels her involvement. "Being a board member has taught me that young people benefit from our involvement in their lives. The more we care, the more we support, the more we mentor, the more we will see an impact in our community."
But it's not just the youth of Nashville that Sherri so diligently serves — she's also an active supporter of Thistle Farms, where she volunteers on the board and the HR Task Force and, really, wherever Thistle Farms can use her. "These women have inspired me — to want to do better, give more and work harder. I can’t find enough ways to give to Thistle Farms," Sherri says. Working with the organization has convinced her that love is truly the most powerful force in the world, and she says seeing that love at work in the lives of Thistle Farms' women has taught her to "walk the talk."
Thistle Farms is dedicated to helping women survivors heal from trafficking, prostitution and addiction by providing housing, meaningful work and lifelong support. Thistle Farms believes love is the most powerful force in the world.
