Our 100th Anniversary of Caroling for Kids saw record-breaking donations and it could not have been done without the generosity and support from friends like you.
Because of these critical funds, we are able to serve at-risk children and families around the Middle Tennessee area. We look forward to partnering again in the future and wish you a wonderful 2017!
100 Years of Caroling for Kids
In the Winter of 1916, with less than one dollar in the treasury, and Christmas looming ahead, Fannie Battle Day Home was nearly forced to close their doors forever. Volunteers worked fervently with local musicians to create the first Caroling for Kids event. Through their performances in theaters, hotels, schools, and door to door, they managed to raise 787 dollars and their dedication enabled them to continue Miss Fannie’s mission.
Fannie Battle Day Home celebrates 125 years of service to East Nashville’s children. Caroling for Kids continues to be a holiday tradition in the greater Nashville community and remains a vital part of our fundraising efforts. Thanks to our carolers, volunteers, sponsors, and friends we are able to provide top-notch care for at-risk children while their families work or attend school.
