At the second Quarterly Breakfast of 2013, the Venturi Brighter Day Employee Fund awarded two grants.  The recipients of this quarter’s grants were Tennessee Riverkeepers and Still Serving Veterans.

The mission of Tennessee Riverkeepers is to protect the Tennessee River and its tributaries by enforcing environmental laws and educating the public to help ensure the Tennessee Valley has a safe, clean water supply. Tennessee Riverkeepers monitors polluters and their pollution permits, responds to citizen complaints, and utilizes other methods to further protect the Tennessee River and its tributaries.
