RIFA is a local, faith-based organization that has been a part of the Jackson community since 1976. The vision of RIFA is to lead and engage the community in the fight against hunger, and in recent years, TBDN has been active in joining the fight. One out of five people living in Jackson are unsure of where their next meal is coming from, so whether it is participating in the RIFA Snack Backpack program or competing in the annual Canstruction event, our team is always ready and willing to make a difference.
Relay for Life
Relay for Life is a team fundraising event that supports the American Cancer Society. TBDN has long been a supporter of Relay for Life and has become a vital part of the 3.5 million survivors, patients, and advocates doing everything we can to save lives. Our team members selflessly devote their time and energy through raising awareness and money to become the voice of American Cancer Society in our community. Through the years, we have held countless fundraisers and participated on-site at the Relay – just in the last two years TBDN has raised over $11,000 for this cause.
Partner in Education
For years, TBDN has been a partner in Education with East Elementary School (Jackson, TN). Through this rewarding program across the county, we have been able to build connections with local children starting at elementary school level. Each year, we are invited by East Elementary to help with various activities like their Field Day and Fall Festival, proctor state testing, assist with book fairs, and participate in Read Across America. This year, TBDN has committed to provide over 650 Redbud seedlings to the students in celebration of Arbor Day.
