Community Row 2017

Middle Tennessee Pet Food Bank - Started in December of 2009, the Middle Tennessee Pet Food Bank collects and distributes donated pet food to animal rescue groups, animal control facilities, animal welfare groups and humane societies in Nashville and the surrounding counties. We hope that a pet food bank will enable the rescues and shelters to stretch their ever-shrinking dollars and help pay for more spay/neuters, veterinary care, behavior assessments and training for the animals in their care. I also hope that when a rescue or shelter is approached by someone who wants to surrender their pet simply because of their temporary inability to feed them, we’ll be able to step up and help keep that animal in its home.

Interfaith Pagan Federation at MTSU - The IPF@MTSU is the Pagan Student Organization at Middle Tennessee University. We are an Interfaith Coalition of New and Old Religions. While the central focus of the IPF@MTSU is exploring the cultures and practices surrounding non-Judeo/Christian and pre-Judeo/Christian spiritual paths, members of all faiths are welcome. The purpose of the IPF@MTSU is to support and uphold the ideals of the True Blue Pledge especially as it pertains to respect for religious diversity among student members and the surrounding community. To this end we will provide an encouraging and supportive environment for students to share and explore the wide variety of spiritual beliefs and practices, to provide activities which educate and inform students on the spiritual beliefs and cultures of others, and to create events conducive to promoting tolerance and understanding among individuals of varying cultures and ideologies. This is an open group, but members are expected to be students at MTSU. Find us on Facebook.

Chalice Fire (CUUPs of FUUN) - Established in 2003, FUUN’s (First Unitarian Universalist Church of Nashville) chapter of the Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (CUUPS) owes a great debt to the original Women’s Group’s founding mothers whose groundwork and dedication kept earth-based spirituality alive at FUUN for over 50 years. The CUUPS chapter, which began as Sanctuary of Light in 2003, transitioned into Chalice Fire in 2016. The name Sanctuary of Light lives on in our pagan prison ministry.

Sanctuary of Light, our growing pagan prison ministry, holds rituals and classes for men and women in Tennessee prisons and provides study and worship materials to Tennessee's prison groups and incarcerated Wiccans and Pagans who make us aware of their needs.
