Trace Adkins Joins Maxwell House Coffee Campaign
"I'll be out there swinging a hammer . . . or whatever they need me to do," says Trace.
Trace Adkins has teamed with Maxwell House Coffee to give back to deserving community centers across the country. Trace has joined the coffee company's latest campaign, Drops of Good: The Maxwell House Community Project, to encourage people to vote for deserving community centers—including centers in Los Angeles, Baltimore, Houston, Pittsburgh and Detroit—that will receive major donations and renovation help.
Americans can vote to select three of 10 community centers to receive up to $50,000 in renovations. Of course, Trace won't just be lending his name and likeness to the project. He will visit one of the three community centers that garner the most votes, to help with the renovations. "I'll be out there swinging a hammer or painting or whatever they need me to do," Trace tells CountryWeekly.com.
"It's always good to help people," Trace says, "and the people at these centers do a lot to support their communities. They are the ones working hard to help the men, women and children in their cities, so it's good to be able to show appreciation for that and to help give back."
Americans can vote daily at maxwellhousecoffee.com to help determine which three of 10 deserving community centers across the country will receive needed renovations. Voting ends June 8. The eligible community centers are listed below:
Dewees Recreation Center in Baltimore
Urban Ministry Center in Charlotte, N.C.
Center for Urban Youth and Family Development in Detroit
Community Family Centers in Houston
Boys and Girls Clubs of East Los Angeles
Shine Performing Arts' Pine Hills Community Center in Orlando, Fla.
