I just love the Sedreck Fields Foundation and The Sedreck Fields Scholarship Fund, I brought both of two books on line last week, to help support the sedreck fields foundation. I cant wait until they have someone donate a building for them to use. It would really be a big help to the 24 hour food pantry and clothing closet.

In 2015 there are thousands of volunteers from all cross the world, wanting to volunteer at The Sedreck Fields Foundation. There is now a waiting list to volunteer for The sedreck Fields Foundation and Sedreck Fields scholarship fund. Once they receive a donated building, volunteers can start volunteering their time at all the 12 new services and program that is own and operated by Dionne Fields
