United Way of Wilson County’s partner agency Cumberland Mental Health Center is on its way to having a new resource thanks to local volunteers.
A walking trail, which will be about 400 feet long when completed, was started recently when LoJac Enterprise President Don Chambers and Vice President Glenn Chambers lent their services to help clear the trail with a special brush cutter which made quick work of the project.
“UWWC loves a large volunteer project like this,” said UWWC President John McMillin. “We hope to involve about 30-40 people and a few other companies in finishing the trail,” McMillin said.
The trail, according to Cumberland Mental Health Director Nathan Miller, will help in getting clients out of the office and into more natural surroundings. Sometimes just talking with someone on one of these “meditation” trails lets them feel more able to open up and facilitate better health, Miller said.
“We very grateful for companies like LoJac; it’s easy to see why this local company is such a success with leadership like the Chambers family who also work to make Wilson County a great place to live for everyone,” McMillin said.
UWWC and Cumberland Mental Health hope to finish the trail in the coming month. To learn more about volunteer opportunities with UWWC, contact the office at 615-443-1871.
