(Nashville, Tenn.) - On March 16, the Madness was felt in the main Nashville office with a Hoops Contest for a Cause. With a $5 entry fee, employees participated in a bracket-style tournament to shoot basketball hoops in an over-the-door hoop that was set up in the Board Room. The money raised from entries and other contributions was donated to Give Me 10, a nonprofit community led movement to address the issue of hunger among children in East Nashville. Currently, East Nashville has 6 districts with a 30% poverty rate or higher (2-times the national rate). Give Me 10 was founded in 2013 in response to students, who depend on school meals, facing hunger during school breaks. Supported by the community and local schools, Give Me 10 has met the food, clothing and other daily needs of more than 200 East Nashville families.
