The foundation hosts all charitable events in Effingham County and the money raised is given back to the community. Portions of all money raised go toward the recreation departments as well as the sheriff's office, fire departments, animal shelters, the Manna House, the Treutlan House, and more.
The foundation gives money back to the Board of Education by being a platinum level sponsor to both Effingham County High and South Effingham High. They also gave money to each elementary school this year and have plans to give to each middle school in the Effingham School District.
Athletics are not the only focus of the Foundation. Each year the organization awards four graduating seniors, one male and one female from each high school, a $1000 college scholarship for academic excellence. The foundation also awards a male and female high school "Athlete of the Month" every month.
On top of donations and fundraising events, Josh himself comes home during the offseason and gives back with his time. Some of the many things you can find Josh doing is reading to the elementary schools, doing speaking engagements around the county, and visiting sick children in the hospital to lift their spirits.
Our mission is to be an advocate for the youth and those in need in our community.
