Journeys partnering with Smyrna Kohl’s for 2016 Fall Social

People with disabilities preparing for ‘spook-tacular’ night


Posted: Oct. 10, 2016


Journeys in Community Living is proud to announce that it will be partnering with Smyrna Kohl’s for this year’s “Fall Social” costume party.


The event, scheduled for 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Oct. 21, will once again be hosted by Dance Murfreesboro. This marks the fourth year in a row that Dance Murfreesboro owners Becky and Steve Lanham have donated the venue to Journeys.


The Fall Social serves as a prime example how Journeys works to ensure that all individuals with disabilities served by the organization have a chance to live independent lives that include social and recreational opportunities. The event will consist of dancing and karaoke, as well as dance and costume contests.


Journeys’ has been committed since 1975 to supporting adults with disabilities in choosing and realizing their visions of where and how they live, work and socialize.


Smyrna Kohl’s Store Manager Ray Norris said his associates are looking forward to volunteering in various roles at the event.


“Kohl’s is proud to be partnering with Journeys to assist them with their Fall Social,” he said.


Kohl’s Associates around the country have been donating their time since the inception of the company’s “Volunteer Program” in 2001.


In 2015 alone, Kohl’s team members participated in 28,500 events nationwide, where they racked up more than 478,700 volunteer hours. Nearly $16 million in corporate grants were dispersed through Kohl’s corporate grants program to more than 7,700 nonprofit organizations in 2015, as well.


Journeys Executive Director George Cunningham recently extended the organization’s gratitude to both Smyrna Kohl’s and Dance Murfreesboro for their involvement in this year’s event.


“We are grateful to both businesses for the contributions they are making,” Cunningham said. “Without contributions from our business community, Journeys would never have been able to provide the level of services and support that it has over the past 40 years.”
