The Beignet Bar, home of the Nashville area’s latest dessert craze, is not only bringing delicious beignets to Music City’s food scene, but it is also serving up benevolence.
The Beignet Bar is teaming up with a few friends in the community (i.e. Lipscomb University’s College of Business, Northwestern Mutual, National Association of State Boards of Accountancy, Jackson Street Church of Christ, etc.) to host a Skills Development Day for the TN Children’s Home as part of its mission to support widows and orphans. It will be held on Friday, Sept. 20 at the TN Children’s Home in Spring Hill.
During Skills Development Day, boys will learn a variety of personal, life and professional skills, ranging from financial literacy and money management to job interviewing to graphic design to supply chain management to health/fitness to basic business skills, etc.
The Beignet Bar is a new, locally owned catering, delivery and food truck business in Nashville that offers classic, traditional beignets as well as a unique assortment of other beignet flavors (i.e. pecan, candied bacon, blueberry basil, peach-filled, etc.). The Beignet Bar is committed to making meaningful contributions to help make this world a better place, specifically by focusing on caring for orphans and widows, as its tagline suggests: “…Creating is our passion and serving is both our pleasure and our purpose.”
“We are very excited about hosting Skills Development Day,” Natasha Johnson, owner of The Beignet Bar, said. “It is our pleasure, but also our responsibility, to serve others. We are grateful for the ongoing partnership that we have had with the TN Children’s Home and for them allowing us to serve and assist an otherwise underserved demographic of young people. Our prayer for this event is that the boys will gain value-added skills that will help them throughout the remainder of their lives.”
The TN Children’s Home is an all-boys residential care facility for children and former orphanage in Spring Hill that is committed to improving the lives of its residents by serving and teaching them to live healthy physical, mental, social and Christian lives.
