It’s like the old saying, “Gotta walk-the-walk if you talk-the-talk.” On March 5, Ascend donated 750 pairs of Bombas socks to the Nashville Rescue Mission. Bombas is an apparel company on a mission to give some fresh threads to the homeless population across America. With every Bombas purchase you make, they will donate an item on your behalf to someone impacted by homelessness. According to their website, more than 30 million items have been donated to more than 2,000 community organizations across the United States.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to make a positive impact in the community with the Nashville Rescue Mission and Bombas,” Ascend President and CEO Caren Gabriel said. “We are more than a credit union. We believe in investing in our community and supporting our neighbors who help keep Middle Tennessee great.”

Organizations like the Nashville Rescue Mission benefit from Ascend and Bombas teaming up to make a positive impact in the community. To learn about some of the organizations the credit union is proud to support, visit this link.

“Sourcing new socks is typically a challenge for organizations supporting those in need, but new and gently used items are especially important in times of crisis,” said Cheryl Chunn, senior director of development at the Nashville Rescue Mission. “We’re very appreciative of Ascend’s contribution which helps us better serve Nashville’s hungry, homeless and hurting.”
