Nashville News 2 Teams Up with Jack In The Box to Help KidsJuly 23, 2012
Jack in the Box and Nashville News 2 teamed up on Friday to help provide school supplies to local school children.
The partnership helped spread the word about United Way “Stuff the Bus” campaign.
“We are trying to prepare Nashville’s at risk students to go back to school this year. Our goal is to fill 3000 backpacks with school supplies which will be distributed to these students through our partner agencies and our United Way Family Resource Centers,” said Courtney Warden, United Way’s Manager of Community Engagement.
Participants of the event received a Jumbo Jack burger for just $1 with all of the money going to the campaign.
Nashville’s News 2 on-air personalities Neil Orne, Julie Kroenig, Justin Bruce, Randy Rauch and Davis Nolan were all on hand to sign autographs.
“Most people are coming out because they want to support the United Way and that is kind of nice to hear,” Orne said, adding, “It has been a great response so far and hopefully the United Way benefits financially.”
Donations can still be made for the cause until Wednesday, July 25 at the United Way office located at 250 Venture Circle.
Next Thursday, the Stuff the Bus Sort-a-Thon will kick off at 11:00 a.m. at Napier Elementary located at 60 Fairfield Avenue.
Volunteers are needed to help sort the supplies.
