Living Local Nashville + Homegrown Taproom 2nd Annual Coat Drive

We’ve teamed up yet again with Homegrown Taproom & Kitchen and Metro Nashville Public Schools to collect coats for students in the Donelson community!

Please consider dropping off a new or gently worn coat in age-appropriate styles to Homegrown Taproom at 2720 Old Lebanon Road, Nashville, TN 37214 between November 20, 2020 and January 31, 2021. If you would like to make a donation but cannot make it to drop off at Homegrown Taproom, please let us know and we will be more than happy to pick it up for you!

We collected dozens of coats last year and distributed them to students in Donelson through the H.E.R.O. program, which serves families in transition, or experiencing homelessness, and helps students and their families with resources and services no matter where they live. We were reminded once again how lucky we are to live and work in such an amazing community. Please help us match last year’s success and then some!

About the Author

My wife and I live in Donelson, where we both were raised and graduated from high school (DCA Classes of 1983 and 1984).  Our current home is on the Cumberland River, very close to my childhood home and the former homes of both my McDonald and Rice grandparents.

Our daughter and son are grown now, and our daughter, Stephanie Miller, is my real estate partner.  She lives in Lebanon with her husband and their two children.  While Stephanie and I specialize in the areas of Downtown Nashville, Donelson, Hermitage, Old Hickory, Mt. Juliet and Lebanon, we have and do serve clients all over Middle Tennessee.

As a Nashville native, I’ve spent a lifetime watching our city evolve, and I am enthusiastic about showcasing it to others and serving their real estate needs.
