“Since 2002, we have created a corporate culture of contribution where we give back at not only a companywide level but also encourage our employees and regional locations to get involved with community initiatives that are important to them,” DEX Imaging President and CEO Dan Doyle, Jr. said. “It’s important for our company to lead by example.”
“Over the last eight years, DEX has been a fantastic partner in our efforts of supporting area charitable and community service organizations with the DEX Score & Win program,” Nashville Predators President Sean Henry said. “This back-to-school supply drive is one more way our organizations have combined resources to provide support to those in our community who need it most.”
The Nashville Predators Foundation strives to meet the educational, social, health and cultural needs of the community by offering unique resources and financial support to local youth-oriented organizations. The Foundation has awarded more than $3.5 million in charitable grants since its establishment in 1998. The Nashville Predators recognize they play an important role in the community beyond what takes place on the ice, and despite the truncated 2012-13 season, the Predators Foundation enjoyed its most successful year of giving to date, as it recently awarded the largest grant total in the organization’s history at $405,000.
