Nashville-based financial services company Advance Financial through its charitable arm the Advance Financial Foundation, has donated a 24-passenger transport bus to Backfield in Motion, a local non-profit.
“We are so excited to be working with this wonderful organization, building up the young people of our community,” said Tina Hodges, owner of Advance Financial. “Through The Advance Financial Foundation, we are able to assist local organizations who are working to make a difference.”
Backfield in Motion is an organization that focuses on education through mastery of literacy and numeracy skills for at-risk youth that leads to a high school diploma, a foundation for higher education, and the on-job skills needed to enter the world of work, while using athletics as an incentive for academic improvement. They serve approximately 300 students throughout the school year.
“Our partnership with the Advance Financial Foundation is embedded in Educating, Engaging, and Empowering our students,” said Todd Campbell, Ed.D., CEO at Backfield in Motion. “The donation of a multi-passenger bus to our program will allow us to continue to transfer students to and from our program sites, keep them engaged in learning through field trips, and helping us deliver food and supply boxes to the needy families of our community.”
