This past week MFR was in Tennessee for the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, helping raise funds and awareness for Nepal earthquake survivors.

We kicked off the festivities with a volunteer event at New Union Elementary School, in collaboration with the Bonnaroo Works and Hands on Nashville, and engaged new supporters onsite at the festival.

49 volunteers from across the country joined the event, helping beautify the school by assembling bookshelves, painting murals, removing weeds, mulching, re-graveling the walk ways, cleaning the exterior of the building, and painting the hallways. Their work will provide students and teachers with a clean, inspiring, and positive environment.
The challenges facing survivors of natural disasters and the current state of our environment is one that requires everyone to do their part and work collectively to provide impactful solutions. Thank you to our partners at Bonnaroo Works Fund and Hands On Nashville for helping out, and to everyone who volunteered and visited us at Planet Roo.
Administered by the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, the Bonnaroo Works Fund supports regional and national organizations with a mission of making communities health in the areas of the arts, educations, and environmental sustainability; with the goal of local reinvestment and asset building for the communities in which we live, work, and play.
