Nashville Predators Foundation Remains Busy Through Month of June

By: Tara Bilby, Nashville Predators Community Relations

The Predators Foundation doesn’t only work with the heroes that play here, but also the heroes in the Nashville area that serve the community. This past week the Community Relations department went on visits to the Fannie Battle Day Home for Children and High Hopes, to tour the facilities and look at where they have implemented the grant they were awarded by the Nashville Predators Foundation. The week wasn't all about work; the Nashville Predators Foundation annual summer program Kids on Ice also started up this past Friday as well.

Fannie Battle Day Home for Children welcomed supporters of the organization to a ribbon cutting ceremony that officially opened their new home. With the Predators Foundation grant money, 60 children from Fannie Battle attended camp this past summer, something the children wouldn’t have had the opportunity to do without the help of the Predators Foundation.

The Fannie Battle students weren’t the only children in the community the Preds had the honor of meeting this past week. The Preds visited High Hopes, an inclusive preschool and pediatric therapy clinic, to view the equipment that was purchased by the Predators Foundation. High Hopes accepts children with different types of disabilities as well as normal development children. With the help of the equipment, purchased by the Predators Foundation, and the talented staff at High Hopes, these children perform miracles on a daily basis. It was another reminder that heroes come in all shapes and sizes.

The Preds ended the week on Friday with another group of children from Cottage Cove and The 18th Avenue Enrichment who went ice skating at Centennial Sportsplex as part of the Nashville Predators Foundation's Kids on Ice program. It’s important to get out and have fun, learn the importance of teamwork and helping others, and that’s what these children learned Friday. Seeing the children helping one another and picking each other up when down is yet another example of what a hero is. With an eventful summer ahead, the Predators Foundation will be visiting and hopefully developing even more heroes in the Nashville community.
