How TVA Helped Bring the Grizzlies to Memphis

Read how a 2001 loan TVA from TVA helped bring the Memphis Grizzlies from Canada to Tennessee.

As our Grizzlies claw further into the NBA playoffs, this is the perfect time to highlight one of our essential community partners that helped get the Grizzlies here (literally) - Mr. Charles Ewing of Ewing Moving Service. TVA helped Ewing secure a loan in 2001 so the company could purchase 6 new moving trucks and move the entire Grizzlies team and staff from Vancouver, Canada to Memphis.

Mr. Ewing and his team were also essential in helping TVA deliver over 200,000 bottles of water to residents of Shelby County during this past February's severe weather crisis which included a boil water notice.
