Columbus Blue Jackets Donate to Nashville Flood Relief
COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES DONATION TO SUPPORT FLOOD RESTORATION EFFORTS IN TENNESSEE
Emergency grant to benefit organizations serving flood-ravaged communities in Nashville region

COLUMBUS, OHIO – In response to the ongoing need for flood restoration funds in the aftermath of massive storms that devastated the greater Nashville area earlier this month, the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation announced today the donation of a $5,000 emergency grant to the Metro Nashville Disaster Response Fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. Columbus-based metals manufacturer Worthington Industries joined with the Foundation and pledged a matching $5,000 grant from their corporate Foundation. Money from this fund will be granted to non-profit organizations that provide relief, restoration and clean-up efforts in the affected region.

The Nashville Predators organization was among those greatly impacted by this natural disaster. In addition to damage sustained at the team’s Bridgestone Arena, many staff members are dealing with severe personal losses at home.

“Although we are rivals on the ice, we are fellow members of the NHL family and the Blue Jackets Foundation is proud to support one of its own,” said Wendy Bradshaw, executive director of the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation. “With this emergency grant, we are hoping to remind others that although the restoration efforts no longer top the daily news headlines, the need for monetary support of the extensive rebuilding and clean-up projects is urgent and ongoing.”


Since its inception 10 years ago, the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation has awarded nearly $3 million in community grants to non-profit organizations that serve the Foundation’s main pillars of giving: pediatric cancer; education; children’s health and safety; and the development of youth and amateur hockey.
