Brad Paisley, Fans Give 900 Pounds of Food and More to Veterans
Brad Paisley and his fans are a generous bunch. At the country superstar's Saratoga Springs, N.Y. show, the fans rallied together and brought a total of 900 pounds of food and raised $400 worth of donations for the Feed Our Vets charity.
Feed Our Vets, which operates both stationary and mobile food pantries, works to end hunger for U.S vets and their families with the goal of keeping them healthy. This marks the second year in a row that Paisley invited the organization to set up a mobile trailer. The group gathered at his sold-out show at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, where food was collected as part of a contest. The winning food collector was rewarded with front row seats to the show and a meet and greet with Paisley.
Richard Synek, the founded and Executive Director of Feed Our Vets, praised Paisley for his efforts to eradicate hunger among those who've served our country, saying, "Brad is a great friend to Feed Our Vets. He cares deeply about helping to ensure that our veterans have adequate food and shelter for themselves and their families, and we’re grateful to call him a partner in our effort to do that."
The food collected at the show will be used to provide meals to New York vets and their loved ones.
Brad Paisley and his fans certainly earned props for doing their part to help vets in need.
