Presenting Partner: The Grainger Foundation

GraingerThis year, Hands On Nashville celebrated its eighth anniversary with The Grainger Foundation, an independent, private foundation, as lead partner of Hands On Nashville Day.

On Saturday, Sept. 19, Grainger volunteers joined more than 1,500 community members to complete “done-in-a-day” projects at 31 Metro Nashville Public Schools to enhance the learning environments for Nashville students. In 2014, Grainger volunteers championed a playground revitalization for Hattie-Cotton STEM Magnet Elementary in East Nashville and hand-built needed picnic tables around the campus. This year, Grainger volunteers led a series of facility improvement projects at J.E. Moss Elementary School, located in Antioch, to enhance the student-learning experience. Thank you to The Grainger Foundation for your generosity in providing a grant for the Hands On Nashville Day effort, which helped create spaces where students are happy, healthy, and ready to learn.

W.W. Grainger Inc., has been a part of the local business community for more than 25 years as the leading broad line supplier of maintenance, repair, and operating products. The Grainger Foundation, an independent, private foundation based in Lake Forest, Illinois, was established in 1949 by William W. Grainger, founder of W.W. Grainger, Inc.
