United Way of Greater Nashville recently announced Tennessee Titans safety Kevin Byard as their official spokesperson.

Byard’s first priority in his new role is to encourage anyone who is able to participate in the virtual 2020 Stuff the Bus school supply drive.

“I’m honored and excited to team up with United Way of Greater Nashville,” Byard said. “We both share a passion for impacting those in need in our community and striving to give everyone the resources needed to be successful. I’m looking forward to building our community and launching our work together with Stuff the Bus.”

Here’s how individuals, groups and workplaces can contribute now through July 10:

• Run a drive. Visit roonga.com/uwgnstuffthebus2020 to set up a team for your workplace or group. Create a team profile, set a goal for your supply drive and share your personalized team link with your colleagues and friends to start collecting.

• Support students by purchasing supply kits or individual items directly from our online store. We’ll make sure the items get delivered to local elementary school students in need.

For those who prefer not to run a drive or purchase supplies directly, individuals can make a credit card donation in any amount which will be used to buy more supplies.

“We’re incredibly lucky to have Kevin on our team,” said Brian Hassett, United Way of Greater Nashville’s president and CEO. “United Way has partnered with the Tennessee Titans for more than 20 years. Our partnership is so strong because of our shared interest in increasing public awareness about the issues facing our community, and how we can work together to better serve our neighbors.”

Byard began The Byard Family Legacy Fund in 2019 because he wanted to make a difference in the lives of his neighbors. Through free annual football camps, Thanksgiving food distribution and the Grace Grant, Byard says the purpose of his foundation is to provide our community with hope for a better tomorrow. In 2019, Byard teamed up with Academy Sports to provide brand new shoes and coats for the children of The Boys and Girls club in Smyrna.
