KNOXVILLE--August 29, 2019--Braxton-Bragg continued its pledge of 25 good deeds by sponsoring “Rods In The City” Car Show, benefitting Tennessee Valley Coalition for The Homeless on August 24 at Powell Church in Knoxville. Nearly 1000 people are currently living on the streets, in tents, in cars, at emergency shelters, or in transitional housing programs in the Tennessee Valley Region. TVCH exists to house the homeless, educate the community, and equip stakeholders to provide lasting solutions to homelessness.
“Braxton-Bragg was honored to be a sponsor of the Rods In The City Car Show because it benefits our nation’s most deserving heroes---veterans,” said Braxton-Bragg CEO Rick Stimac. “The Tennessee Valley Coalition’s mission is to house all of the homeless veterans in East Tennessee, and we can’t think of a better mission to support. This is the 17th good deed Braxton-Bragg employees have completed in our community this year, towards our goal of 25 good deeds to celebrate our 25 years in business.”
“I want to thank Braxton-Bragg and all the sponsors for their support of our second annual Rods in the City car show,” said, Mikhael Berry, Chief Development Officer of Tennessee Valley Coalition for the Homeless. “Because of these sponsors we grew this event 100% from the first year and will be able to help more homeless veterans.”
