From hurricane and flood relief, to home-building, to special assistance during the
holidays, Tyrone recognizes that we must sometimes do things simply because “it’s the right thing to do.” So rather than give to large, national humanitarian efforts, the Tyrone Poole 38 Foundation allows people to give to specific efforts, close to home…where they can truly see their dollars at work.
Tyrone Poole’s “Home Cookin’ for the Holidays” Program
Starting right in his hometown of La Grange, GA, Tyrone uses his Foundation to organize local communities around ensuring that those who want to prepare a
home-cooked meal for their family can do just that. Although there is certainly a place for large group holiday dinners for those in need, Tyrone knows nothing can replace the intimacy of having holidays meals at home, with one’s own family members. And, the smiles on the faces of the families in these photos says it all!
Hosting Virtual Walks for the Benefit of Other Charities
The Tyrone Poole 38 Foundation has teamed with a Toronto-based
nonprofit, “The Diversity Channel” to leverage a “virtual walk”
technology platform to benefit any, qualifying nonprofit organization. Because some of the most effective nonprofit organizations are small, grassroots
organizations that handle specific problems in smaller communities, Tyrone wanted to ensure that they had access to same leading-edge technology tools as the Tyrone Poole 38 Foundation.
Teaming for Quality Housing
Although in its infancy, an effort about which Tyrone is passionate is safe, quality housing for the undeserved. While we all agreed that life’s basic necessities are food, shelter and clothing, it is much easier to provide the need with food and clothing than shelter. So from current discussions with local and state governments, to formulating projects that team
the Tyrone Poole 38 Foundation with local construction companies and developers, watch for movement in this area in the future. And, if you have ideas about how to move our dream forward more quickly, do not hesitate to contact us!
