Weyerhaeuser recently granted funding to an ‘up and coming’ nonprofit organization, The Coach De Foundation.
The organization is designed to be used as a vehicle to bring resources to underserved or low income neighborhoods. The Coach De Foundation was founded in April of 2019 by De’Andrea “Coach De” Sanders, a local community advocate. TCDF currently hosts Coach De’s Closets, provides school supplies (shoes, backpacks, supplies and uniforms) to local youth, provides meals/toys during Thanksgiving and Christmas and participates in other local nonprofit events by providing crafts. The foundation is most known for hosting Coach De’s Closets which are events that provide clothing, toys, shoes, food and hygiene products to families in low-income neighborhoods. The Closets are hosted at local parks to break the transportation and financial barriers families of the neighborhood encounter. The Coach De Foundation solicits lightly used or new items from the community to fill the closets prior to the events through donations.
Visit www.thecoachdefoundation.com for more information, to donate or purchase a CommUnity shirt. Every two CommUnity shirts purchased donates a shirt to local youth.
To keep up with upcoming events follow TCDF on facebook at The Coach De Foundation or instagram.
