Rutherford County’s Community Baby Shower

Community Baby Shower (United Way)United Way and the Rutherford County Health Department join together each year for the Community Baby Shower, where fellow residents of Rutherford County are asked to collect and donate essential baby items for expectant and new mothers. The Murfreesboro Water Resources Department is proud to serve as a collection site within the community for those wanting to donate to this special cause.

This year, the United Way had a goal of 500 baby bags to be distributed to families in Rutherford and Cannon counties. Focusing on one of the United Way’s priority community issues, healthy beginnings, the bags contained essential baby supplies for a healthy start in life. We are proud to say that United Way of Rutherford and Canon Counties exceeded their goal!

"Stuff The Bus" School Supply Drive

Each summer, The Murfreesboro Water Resources Department partners with United Way to collect school supplies for at-risk students around the Rutherford County area. Murfreesboro residents, businesses, and City employees are urged to donate backpacks, Crayola crayons, color pencils, dry erase markers, glue sticks, scissors, #2 pencils, hand sanitizer, and notebooks to help students start their school year off right!

For another year, MWRD is participating as a donation site for those wanting to give. "Stuff The Bus" usually kicks off at the end of June and usually ends just in time for school at the end of July.

What We’re Doing At MWRD

For those wanting to donate monetarily, Murfreesboro Water’s Community Affairs is opening its ’Stuff The Bus’ Donation Store. Just come into the office and drop your donation off in the box at the front. We’re accepting CASH or CHECKS and all checks should be made out to "United Way for Stuff The Bus." Be sure to write your contact information on the front of the envelope for a chance to be submitted into a drawing for a special gift from our Community Affairs Division!
