(BPT) – More than 2,000 H&R Block franchise owners from all over the U.S. were in Nashville making a difference. The group stepped away from meetings to help nonprofit organizations. H&R Block teamed up with the Boys and Girls Club to put together thousands of toiletry bags for area youth. In addition, the over 3,000 veterans in the Nashville area that have fallen on tough times will receive gloves, warm clothing items and more through Operation Stand Down Tennessee. Through the Gallatin CARES program, more than 300 families received groceries that were boxed and then passed out at a Monday night distribution event.
