Nashville Predators Check-in: Giving to the Community and Helping Others

We’re all looking forward to a time when hockey resumes, but for now, we have to dig deep to stay connected with the Nashville Predators.

Many look to social media to fill that hole that’s missing in their current sports lives. We’re checking in on some of our favorite Nashville Predators players and the team to see what they have been up to this week.

There’s always a lot to check out on the Predators’ social media sites. It is also fun to follow individual players. We are fortunate that the Predators have such a  great social media team and players who are willing to connect with their fans.

Until we get back to some sense of normalcy in the sports world, we’ll be following the team and players closely to see how they’re passing the time and staying ready to go if and when the season continues.

In this week’s check-in with the Predators, we’re taking a look at some of the ways that the team is helping the community. There are also many ways that you can help out too.

Give With Us

In these uncertain times, it’s good to give back to those in need. The Predators have compiled a list of all of their community initiatives. Click on the link below to access them.

Speaking Of Giving

Predators’ ownership members Bryan and Stephanie Grane, donated $300,000 to help Middle Tennessee’s local non-profits over the next three years. This donation will benefit many different programs and initiatives. Thank you to the Grane’s for their generosity.

Predators Team Up With The American Red Cross of Tennessee

Something That We All Miss

Predators Organist Kyle Hankins, aka “Krazy Kyle,” had the honor of playing the National Anthem before one of the virtual NHL playoff games between Nashville and St. Louis. Kyle did an excellent job singing and playing the anthem. It is always moving when the anthem is played at Bridgestone. I know we all look forward to a time when we can all gather and sing the anthem with pride.

And Finally…A Little Bit About Nick Bonino

Predators Center Nick Bonino is always good for a laugh. In the clip below, Bonino speaks about himself in the third person and answers the most common internet questions about himself.

Bonino is a cool guy who seems like he would be fun to hang out with.

During these trying times, it’s good that we can continue to follow our favorite teams on social media to help provide some form of comfort and normalcy.

It’s always good to see the many ways that the Predators organization helps the community and others. Their charity organizations and giving initiatives are top-notch, and we’re all fortunate to have a caring and giving team to root for.
