Nashville Hope Lodge ice machine given new life for free

2 Gives Back

A local business has made things more comfortable for patients at the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge in Nashville.

During the recent News 2 Day of Caring, it was discovered that the Hope Lodge ice machine had been broken for months and required some costly repairs.

The Hope Lodge, which gives cancer patients and their families a free place to stay when they need treatment in Nashville, runs almost completely on donations and they just couldn’t afford to fix it. 

When News 2 reached out to a local vendor for help, they gladly jumped in.

“Any time in your community that you can reach out and so something then I think that’s what you should do,” said Robert Price, B & P Ice Machines, Inc. “And that’s what we’re doing today.”

Repairs of this type would normally cost about $300, but B & P Ice Machines made the repairs for free.

Over 2 days last week, News 2 employees served meals, cleaned and painted the Hope Lodge as part of the Nexstar Founder’s Day of Caring.
