Merry Christmas from Advance Memphis!

GOOD NEWS FRIDAY!!! Advance Memphis has purchased over 63,000 sq ft of additional warehousing space located at 960 S. Bellevue, only 1.3 miles from our 24,000 sq ft facility at 575 Suzette. We are also grateful to God that the sale was completed with a one-time grant from a local foundation to support our purpose of providing jobs for our Work Life graduates in the 38126 and 38106 neighborhoods. With the growing work in our Suzette warehouse, we sought additional space in the neighborhood. We currently offer pick, pack, and ship operations; light manufacturing; and assembly for National Guard Products, Church Health, Sorbent Green, Docazoo, Drift Fly, and Mahaffey Tent. We also provide work space for our LAUNCH program graduates and hard skills training. Steve Nash, Executive Director of Advance Memphis, states, “Opening more warehousing space in South Memphis puts our neighbors to work close to home and stimulates change for the entire community.” The new facility will be ready for outsourcing work after the first of the year.

Our partner, Slingshot Memphis, was recently featured in Please enjoy the article here featuring a picture of Ronald Proctor on a forklift in the Advance Memphis Warehouse. We are thankful for their work in Memphis!
