Jack White is hosting a Thanksgiving food drive for Nashville Rescue Mission, and it's a win-win for music fans. Billboard reported on Monday that the Nashville-based rocker and his record label, Third Man Records, are running a food drive now through Nov. 18, and fans who donate will be able to get discounted tickets to one of White's upcoming concerts as a thank you.
Fans are asked to choose three items from a list of requested donations and bring them to either the box office at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena or the offices of Third Man Records from now until Nov. 18. When they drop off their donation, they'll receive a discount code that will let them purchase tickets to White's Nov. 20 concert at Bridgestone Arena for a whopping 30 percent off regular price.
That's not all. Those who contribute will also be entered into a sweepstake, where the grand prize is an upgrade to side stage tickets for the concert that provide some of the best views in the house! The grand prize winner also receives a rare test pressing of White's current album Boarding House Reach, which will be autographed by White himself.
Monday isn't the first time that Jack White has proven himself to be a rock star both on and off stage. Earlier this fall, the "Connected By Love" singer donated $30,000 to help save the house from "The Outsiders" from being torn down. Now he's helping out Nashville Rescue Mission, which has helped out homeless men, women and children in the city since 1954; you can learn more about the organization here.
Musically, White released his concert film "Kneeling At The Anthem D.C." on Amazon Video last month; fans can watch a clip from the movie by playing the video above. And before Thanksgiving, he's lined up a pair of performances at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, New York on Nov. 16 and 17. Tickets to both shows are on sale now through AXS here.
While he's tearing up the stage on tour, Jack White is also making a beautiful gesture to help the less fortunate in his local community. And it also benefits music fans, because by helping out someone in need, they're also helping themselves get cheaper tickets to what's going to be an outstanding concert. This is a brilliant idea and hopefully, music fans will turn out in force for White's food drive.
