Dining at Chili’s can again help restock MTSU Raiders’ Closet

Patrons dining at a Murfreesboro restaurant could mean more good news for a worthy MTSU student service.

The Chili’s restaurant at 755 N.W. Broad St. in Murfreesboro will donate 10 percent of its Tuesday, Nov. 18, sales to Raiders’ Closet.

The restaurant conducted a similar successful Raiders’ Closet fundraiser last month.

Created by Dr. Virginia Hemby-Grubb, a professor in MTSU’s Department of Business Communication and Entrepreneurship, the operation is located in Room 327 of the Keathley University Center.

It provides gently used professional attire for students who need appropriate clothing for job interviews, internships and other professional endeavors.

Students may try on clothing and keep the items they choose. The closet relies on donations to stock suits, blouses, dresses, skirts, shoes, ties and accessories.

The Raiders’ Closet also has an MTSU foundation account, which enables it to collect money to restock its inventory and to find special clothing sizes.

The Nov. 18 giveback is good only at the Northwest Broad Street Chili’s location from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. It’s valid for all food and nonalcoholic beverage sales.

For more information, contact Hemby-Grubb at 615-898-2369 or or Jaye Kiblinger at 615-898-2902 or
