Supporting Nashville Disaster Relief

Catering, Americas, Sports & Leisure, Service Provider News

Delaware North is supporting the recovery of Nahville from the devastating impact of the March 3 tornadoes by donating $10,000 to The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.


The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee activated its Middle Tennessee Emergency Response Fund to support affected communities and nonprofit organisations helping victims address their ongoing needs.


Grants from the fund will be made to nonprofits providing vital services in the immediate, as well as longer term.


Delaware North Co-CEOs Jerry Jacobs Jr., and Lou Jacobs, collaborated with Jamie Obletz, president of travel, and James Taylor, president of Sportservice to put the donation in motion.


The company has operated concessions and retail at Bridgestone Arena since 1996 and has provided food and beverage services at Nashville International Airport for more than 60 years.
