Nashville is home to around 1,000 Eventbrite and Postmates employees, making it an important city not just for the two companies, but for the many customers they serve. So when the devastating tornado hit on Tuesday morning, our teams jumped into action to do what we could to help not just our own family of employees, but the wider community.
Through a combination of financial support and on the ground volunteering with companies that share our office location at Cummins Station, Postmates and Eventbrite have contributed over $100,000 through direct in-kind support and cash donations to the Mayor’s recommended fund, the Middle TN Emergency Response Fund.
In the early hours of the disaster on Tuesday, March 3, 2020 Postmates employees were mobilized by the Civic Labs team to support one of our FoodFight! partners, the Little Pantry that Could, who was suffering from power outages.
That same day, employees distributed meals for the Martha O’Bryan Center and provided Postmates credit to cover meals for those in need for the day. The next morning, our team got together to serve meals at Room In the Inn for the unhoused, participated in a Germantown clean up, and one hosted by Zeal Church.
