(Nashville, Tenn.) - On July 28, team members participated in a bracket-style corn hole tournament (aka bean bag toss). Each competitor paid a minimum of $5 to enter the contest. The corn hole boards were set up in the Board Room and the contestants played games until a winner was declared.
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 six 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.
Micah Williams, Property Manager, created the fun with a purpose event, and Jayme Baldwin, COI Coordinator, identified the nonprofit.
