Thomas Rhett Hosts Volunteer Event to Support U.S. Military

On Nov. 13 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena Plaza, Thomas Rhett teamed with Crown Royal for the Purple Bag Project to benefit U.S. servicemen and women stationed overseas.

TR hosted the volunteer takeover and helped fans fill purple Crown Royal bags with uplifting notes and food items. Chris Lucas and Preston Brust of Locash also stopped by to lend a helping hand.

Since 2010, Crown Royal has worked with Packages From Home as a national charity partner supporting their purpose of sending thanks to troops overseas. During Purple Bag events, participants are invited to write notes and help stuff care packages for troops. The bags will also be sent to people affected by the recent hurricanes and other natural disasters.

“It’s really cool to be a part of that,” said TR to WKRN News 2. “It’s just a really cool partnering because I feel like our goals and values align as far as the charitable component. My wife and I take pride in that being a big way that we live our lives.”
