Brittany Maxwell was a vibrant young Police Officer with the Murfreesboro Police Dept.,stationed at the Franklin Heights Housing complex where she served as a COPS Officer. Inspired by a young child who said Christmas trees were only for rich people, she started the Christmas Tree Project so families could have a tree who normally wouldn’t have one. Unfortunately, she passed away before the project was complete. Her family & friends have decided to take on her project and named it “The Brittany Project” in her honor. The Brittany Project hands out fully decorated trees to Families that might not have or have not ever had a Christmas Tree.

Moving Forward

The vision of The Brittany Project moving forward is to continue the annual Christmas tree program, while expanding to help with other day-to-day needs within the Community that we know were also close to Brittany’s heart. As she knew, and we have seen, there is a need for those in the community that are suffering with self-esteem issues resulting from bullying, dysfunctional backgrounds, economic and physical appearance.

With all the available resources, there are still individuals not receiving the help needed to empower them to overcome adversities, meet basic physical or emotional needs. A few examples of how The Brittany Project can meet those needs are, mentoring children/adults, supporting underprivileged kids in extracurricular activities, food, clothing, school supplies, or other financial & emotional support. In areas where The Brittany Project is not qualified, or financially able to assist, we will guide those individuals to the proper resources.

The Brittany Project is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, your donations may qualify as a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes.
