The Nashville Predators & DEX Imaging Host Back To School Supply Collection Challenge

NASHVILLE, TN  – The Nashville Predators Foundation in partnership with DEX Imaging, the largest and fastest growing independent document imaging dealer in the Southeast United States, will be joining forces to collect various school supplies items for Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee, Lighthouse Christian School and New Hope Academy and as students begin the 2013-2014 school year.

Collection of basic school supplies – including pencils, erasers, notebook paper, binders and more – will occur at the following drop-off locations:

DEX Imaging, Nashville office – 5225 Harding Place, Nashville

Bridgestone Arena, Nashville Predators office – 501 Broadway, Nashville

Centennial Sportsplex – 222 25th Avenue N., Nashville

Predators Preseason vouchers will be offered at the DEX and Bridgestone drop off locations while supplies last.

“Since 2002, we have created a corporate culture of contribution where we give back at not only a companywide level but also encourage our employees and regional locations to get involved with community initiatives that are important to them,” DEX Imaging President and CEO Dan Doyle, Jr. said. “It’s important for our company to lead by example.”

“Over the last eight years, DEX has been a fantastic partner in our efforts of supporting area charitable and community service organizations with the DEX Score & Win program,” Nashville Predators President Sean Henry said. “This back-to-school supply drive is one more way our organizations have combined resources to provide support to those in our community who need it most.”

The Nashville Predators Foundation strives to meet the educational, social, health and cultural needs of the community by offering unique resources and financial support to local youth-oriented organizations. The Foundation has awarded more than $3.5 million in charitable grants since its establishment in 1998. The Nashville Predators recognize they play an important role in the community beyond what takes place on the ice, and despite the truncated 2012-13 season, the Predators Foundation enjoyed its most successful year of giving to date, as it recently awarded the largest grant total in the organization’s history at $405,000.

For more than 110 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee has enabled all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens. Annually, more than 2,000 youth walk through the doors of five Middle Tennessee Boys & Girls Clubs locations in both Davidson & Williamson counties. The Clubs always put KIDS FIRST by providing a safe place, professional caring staff, fun and friendship, and high-impact youth development programs on a daily basis during critical non-school hours. Priority programs emphasize academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles. For more information, visit www.bgcmt.org or call 615-983-6836.
