Spring Hill’s own Grecian Family Restaurant and Bakery will be holding a fundraiser Thursday for the Tennessee Children’s Home, the historic residential care facility for children that began as an orphanage more than a 100 years ago.
Held at Grecian Family Restaurant and Bakery, located at 2003 Wall St., in Spring Hill, the fundraiser is scheduled all day from 7 a.m. – 9 p.m. All day Thursday, 10% of all proceeds, which includes breakfast, restaurant, bakery and takeout, will go towards helping support the Tennessee Children’s Home.
Grecian Family Restaurant and Bakery routinely holds fundraisers for various causes, with its most recent fundraiser helping to support a young girl battling brain cancer
The Tennessee Children’s Home provides residential treatment, child and family counseling, as well as independent living programs, particularly for children who are victims of abuse, neglect or exploitation. As a nonprofit, the organization largely operates on donations and community support.
The Tennessee Children’s Home’s stated mission is to “[improve] the lives of those we influence through quality services in a Christian atmosphere.”
Originally opening in Columbia in 1909, the Tennessee Children’s Home began as an orphanage, moving to Spring Hill in 1934. The home has cared for more than 20,000 children since its inception more than a century ago.
