Mt. Juliet, Tenn.
United States

The Mt. Juliet Help Center provides food and emergency assistance to those in dire need. In 2006, after serving the community for decades, the center lost its lease and was forced to shut down. Unwilling to accept the closure, Bacon found new office space and manned the center herself for six months in a 10-by-12-foot room. Today, with Bacon as president, the center serves 400 families a month, offering food and financial aid for utility bills, gas, and prescription medicine.
