Rascal Flatts Are in the Giving Spirit
After donating more than $3 million to the Monroe Carell Children's Hospital in Nashville, the trio were recently recognized in a big way, as the hospital renamed its pediatric surgery center the Rascal Flatts Surgery Center. Another cause near and dear to the guys' hearts is helping the underprivileged. This week, they stopped in to a New York City JCPenney to promote the JC Penney Online Angel Giving Tree Program, which provides clothing, gifts and other wish list items to needy kids and seniors.
While at JCPenney on November 17, the band hosted a toy drive and gave autographed copies of the new album to the first 100 fans who donated a new toy to the program. Fans who buy 'Nothing Like This' at any JCPenney between now and March 15, 2011 will have $1 of the sale donated to the Salvation Army.
In addition, the trio presented a $100,000 check to the Salvation Army on behalf of the retailer. The money will be used to provide holiday gifts for 1,000 children. And, of course, the trio also adopted their own angels through the program.
Rascal Flatts' next concert is scheduled for December 14 in Nashville. For a complete list of dates and locales, check here.
