Whether you're making a visit to Ford Ice Center in Antioch or Bellevue, or paying tribute to those who have served during Ford Military Week or the in-game Ford Military Salute at Bridgestone Arena, it's easy to recognize the brand as part of the Smashville family.

Mike Fisher Clay Shoot Raises Funds for Local Ministries In Need

Former Preds Captain, Predators Foundation, CATCHIN' DEERS Host Annual Event Presented by Cooper Steel; $80,000 Raised for Organizations

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Senior Communications & Content Coordinator

Whether it was in the public eye or not, Mike Fisher has always focused on helping others.

Never one to seek out the spotlight, the former Predators captain was known to show up unannounced to some of his favorite spots around town to volunteer his time or make a donation.

When he hung his skates up for good in the summer of 2018, Fisher knew he would no longer be making appearances on the ice, but he wasn't about to abandon those in Middle Tennessee who still needed the assistance.

Preds Foundation Grant Recipients Continue to Make Impacts in Community

Despite Nashville Tornado, COVID-19 Pandemic, Local Organizations Making A Difference with Help from Preds Foundation

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Senior Communications & Content Coordinator

The West Nashville Dream Center didn't intend to use their grant from the Nashville Predators Foundation empowered by SmileDirectClub to hire a North Nashville coordinator, but then, the March 3 tornado struck.

Manna Café Ministries originally planned on utilizing their grant for their Operation Pomegranate Junior Program, but then the COVID-19 pandemic arrived.

Musicians On Call reallocated their grant funds because an in-person Children's Bedside Performance Program was no longer feasible in this climate.

The Preds Foundation initially identified these three organizations, and so many more throughout the community, as worthy causes who deserved some assistance in helping to make their missions come true. But things haven't come easy as of late in Nashville, and when a pandemic put a shutdown on everyday life just days after a tornado struck the region, the work of institutions like these garnered even more importance.
