International Gator Day 2016 Recap


On a day that started out with threatening storms, the Music City Gator Club got together at the Nashville Crossroads Campus to support International Gator Day.

Crossroads Campus is an organization that has a deep love and appreciation for two-legged and four-legged members of our community and works hard to better the lives of both through the healing power of the human-animal bond. They are a non-profit 501(c)(3) with a passion for creating and fostering caring connections between people and pets. Through their diverse programs, they bring people from all walks of life together to make a difference in the lives of homeless animals and young people in the community. Crossroads finds homes for sheltered dogs and cats and also provides paid internship programs to young adults who lack the experience and connections to break into the workforce.

The Music City Gator Club’s participation in International Gator Day took place in spreading the word about Crossroads Campus on their third anniversary by canvassing the local neighborhood, the Nashville Farmer’s Market and Bi-Centennial Park, and the Capital District Fair. We had 20 participants for this family and pet friendly event. Although this endeavor required a lot of walking and interaction with the public, all participants were pleased with the event and many expressed interests in participating in more efforts like this. The Coordinator from Crossroads Campus was extremely appreciative of our participation and informed us that our efforts substantially increased awareness and visits to their retail store.

Thank you to all who participated.
