Nashville, TN (Vocus) May 19, 2010
The Tennessean announced it will make a $25,000 donation to the Nashville Red Cross through the Gannett Foundation in support of aid to flood victims. The Tennessean is also donating the manpower of employees to help in the recovery effort.
“From the coverage of our reporters and photographers, we know all too well the devastation that this historic flood has caused,” said VP/Market Development Bob Faricy. “As a part of this community, we want to contribute to helping those most in need.”
In addition to the $25,000 donation to the Red Cross, The Tennessean is allowing employees to dedicate a day, with pay, to help out those in need in our area. Employees can help friends and family who have been affected, or donate their time to one of the community organizations providing aid.
The Tennessean makes financial contributions from the Gannett Foundation to local charities annually, with $115,000 being donated in 2009. The contribution to the Red Cross is above and beyond the normal giving process.
