Brett Eldredge Starts Family Foundation

Brett Eldredge has found a new way to help those in need. The singer has created the Brett Eldredge Family Foundation, which aims to help children battling cancer and raise money for research to find a cure.

As the Foundation’s first move, the singer and his family, including dad Chris, mom Robin and brother Brice, donated $60,000 to the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, money raised during Brett’s annual holiday party, which was held in Nashville.

“The passion and love the folks at Vanderbilt Children’s hospital have for their kiddos is UNREAL!,” he wrote on Instagram. “ So proud to give them this check from The Brett Eldredge Family Foundation…keep going, we’re here for you.”
