"We're still on cloud nine and feeling overwhelmed with all of the love that everyone poured into TOGETHER: FEEDING NASHVILLE. So many lives will be impacted by the incredible generosity from our community and we are forever grateful," Hayley shared in a statement. "We'll definitely be reliving this special night for a long time and dreaming up the next one!" "Words can't describe the support we have felt from our entire community," Taylin added. "Our drive and devotion to serving Feeding Nashville is stronger than ever!"
