Charles W. Bone Receives Humanitarian Award in Sumner County

Charles W. Bone, founder and chairman of Bone McAllester Norton PLLC, received the Leimenstoll/Martin Humanitarian Award from the Gallatin Shalom Zone during their 4th Annual Gala Tribute Dinner on April 25.

The Leimenstoll/Martin Humanitarian Award was established to recognize character, strength and unwavering integrity and human compassion. The award is given to individuals who have helped to make others’ lives better through bold dedication to serve and strong faith in the human spirit.

Charles is a longtime contributor to the Middle Tennessee nonprofit community, serving a number of organizations, including Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition, Youth Life Learning Centers, Conexion Americas, Cumberland Region Tomorrow and the American Heart Association. He is the first Emeritus member of the Board of Directors of Salvus, Inc., an initiative he founded with a local physician to provide quality healthcare to uninsured individuals.

The Gallatin Shalom Zone is an organization designed and created to engage residents of Gallatin’s Clearview community in the work of healing, peace, reconciliation, justice and love, so that the citizens can grow beyond their current circumstances and, together, live as a beloved community. A densely populated inner-city neighborhood, Clearview residents face challenges of poverty, crime and inadequate education.

Since its inception in 1996, Gallatin Shalom Zone has offered educational programs, provided scholarships, organized health fairs, created mentoring programs for at-risk youth and worked with city officials to improve Clearview Park.  Drug activity and crime in Clearview are on the decline, and pride of ownership and responsibility are on the rise.
