Bridgestone Americas receives highest honor from United Way of Metropolitan Nashville
Before the start of each school year, many at-risk children lack the basic supplies needed to start off the year on the right foot. This summer, Bridgestone partnered with United Way of Metropolitan Nashville for the third time as a presenting sponsor of their annual Stuff the Bus campaign. This year, Bridgestone supplied backpacks filled with school supplies to 9,635 students at nine elementary schools in the Metro Nashville Public School system.
Thanks to the company's support of United Way of Metropolitan Nashville, the organization awarded Bridgestone the Iris Circle Award, the highest honor bestowed upon a company. The Iris Circle Award honors the strategic support of companies through all aspects of campaign and volunteer leadership. Thanks to the partnership with United Way, Bridgestone has been able to make an immense difference in the Nashville community.
Thank you to all the teammates who supported this year's event.
