The OTF community is an active bunch these days, speculating about the future of the Nashville Predators, grousing over losses, and looking ahead to game nights at Bridgestone Arena. For the next couple weeks, however, let's put our collective energy & enthusiasm behind a cause that needs our help.
On The Forecheck is joining the fight against hunger this month by participating in a Virtual Food Drive for Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. Head over to our team's Virtual Food Drive page, where you can shop for specific items (such as canned vegetables, pasta, peanut butter, etc.) which are needed or make a simple monetary donation to Second Harvest. I've set our team goal at $1,000 - roughly one buck for each time we hear someone propose a trade of Ryan Ellis & a draft pick for that elusive goal scorer the Preds need.
Once again, here's the link you need to use to make your donation to our Virtual Food Drive:
Did You Know?
According to Second Harvest, one in four children and one in six adults struggle with hunger in Tennessee.
Folks, that is simply abominable - and it's something we can directly impact, both individually and as a group. Your donation will help the needy in our community: 96 cents of every dollar donated to Second Harvest of Middle Tennessee gets put into action, and this charity scores very highly for transparency, accountability and financial performance.
