Preds Give Back Through Food Drive and Military Appreciation

Nashville, Tenn. – The Nashville Predators are teaming up with Second Harvest Food Bank, FOX 17, 102.5 The Game and 102.9 The Buzz to host a food drive on Monday, Nov. 25.

WHERE: Those wishing to participate can drive by the Bridgestone Arena Plaza on Fifth Avenue and FOX 17 personalities, Preds staff and game personalities, Gnash and the Predators Energy Team will meet participants at their vehicles to accept donations. Throughout the day activities will be available on the plaza, Dunkin Donuts will be on-site and food trucks will be available during lunch hours.

WHEN: 6 a.m. through the end of that evening’s game vs. the Phoenix Coyotes

NOTES: The Preds will be accepting both monetary donations and donations of non-perishable food items. The most needed items are peanut butter, canned meat (chicken/tuna), canned fruits and vegetables, soups and stews, and pasta and cereal. Over the course of the food drive, those who donate food will have the opportunity to receive free Vanderbilt Women’s Basketball tickets or vouchers to the November 25 Nashville Predators game. Tickets are limited and not guaranteed.

In addition to Monday’s food drive, during that evening’s game versus the Phoenix Coyotes, local police officers, firefighters, nurses, teachers and other “hometown heroes,” as well as though who serve and have served in the military will be recognized during the Ford Hometown Heroes / Military Appreciation Night. The following special events and offers will take place:

  • The Nashville Predators will wear camouflage jerseys during the pre-game skate. These jerseys will be auctioned off with proceeds going to support Defending the Blue Line (defendingtheblueline.org) and towards purchasing future game tickets for military members and their families. 

  • Defending the Blue Line, a charity supported by both Matt Hendricks and Eric Nystrom, will be selling “Hendy’s Heroes” t-shirts. 100 percent of the proceeds will go toward the organization, which works toward ensuring that children of military members are afforded every opportunity to participate in the game of hockey.

A limited number of tickets still remain, for more information about how to purchase tickets, visit nashvillepredators.com or call 615-770-7800.
