Limited-edition “TEX” hats created and distributed by Nashville-based (code)word Hats are now available for purchase at

Proceeds will be directed towards providing meals for Houston area victims of this week’s Hurricane Harvey. In just 48-hours, the company has sold enough hats to provide over 2,000 meals.

“When we heard about Harvey, we knew we had to do something,” said Sean Pace, co-owner of (code)word. “Our mission in creating (code)word was to give back – Harvey provided the perfect opportunity to do so.”

Established in 2016 by music industry professionals Pace (artist management) and Nate Montgomery (songwriter), (code)word was founded on the concept of giving back to local communities nationwide. The line, which comes in a number of colors and a trademark area code, offers customers a way to invest back into the communities they call home. A portion of all proceeds from every hat sold is donated back to a children’s hospital within the purchased hat’s area code.

“In situations like this, not being in the area effected, you feel helpless,” said Montgomery. “Given a single hat provides 21 meals, we hope to sell many more hats and provide as many meals possible to those currently displaced and in need in the Houston area. It’s our way of letting them know we’re here for them.”
