Belmont Cares, a campus-wide campaign to raise money for a number of local causes and organizations, encourages Belmont faculty and staff to engage with the community in a powerful way. This year’s efforts concluded with faculty and staff giving more $42,000 to benefit United Way of Metropolitan Nashville, Community Shares of Tennessee, Community Heath Charities of Tennessee and Nashville Public Education Foundation.
Throughout the month of October, the 2015 Belmont Cares Committee hosted a number of events including the month’s kick-off, a Two Buck Breakfast where faculty and staff were invited to eat breakfast in the dining hall for a $2 donation. This year’s event brought record numbers. Two weeks later, the Belmont community enjoyed lunch from area food trucks at the campaign’s “Foodtruck Frenzy.”
