[203] Chili’s restaurant again ‘gives back’ to MTSU Raiders’ Closet Nov. 18

MURFREESBORO — Dining at a Murfreesboro restaurant could be very lucrative 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.

Created by Dr. Virginia Hemby-Grubb, a professor in the Department of Business Communication and Entrepreneurship, the closet is located in Room 327 of the Keathley University Center on campus.

It relies on donations of gently used professional attire to give to 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 stocks suits, blouses, dresses, skirts, shoes, ties and accessories.

The 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 St. Chili’s location from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and is good for all food and non-alcoholic beverage sales.

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