My kids heard me talk about how amazing the Sedreck Fields Foundation was for so many years. And now my kids want to get on the waiting list to volunteer at the sedreck fields foundation and sedreck fields scholarship fund. When the next generations of volunteers, from the same family wants to volunteer at the sedreck fields foundation. This is a great cause, all across the world.

The Sedreck Fields Foundation should also contact other Real Estate office, to see if someone could donate a building or a home for your organization.

The City of Atlanta is a big city, try Remax they may can help.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Host a community garage sale, to raise money for The Sedreck Fields Foundation 2014.

I pray that in 2015 that The Sedreck Fields Foundation and Sedreck Fields Scholarship Fund, receive a donation of a building this year. They need a place call home, to help others in need. This is one of my favorite non profit organization in the entire world.

I know that the Sedreck Fields Foundation is in need of a building in Atlanta, Georgia. If the Sedreck Fields Foundation is willing to relocate to Orlando, Florida. We will be happy to let your organization have full use our our building. The building is big enough for your 24 hour food pantry and clothing closet. The families here in Orlando Florida, would appreciate an amazing organization like this. We will be happy to receive you with a huge warm welcome from the state of Florida. This is my favorite non profit organization in the world.

Since Sedreck Fields Foundation is named after a professional athlete, would your organization be willing to do a golf tornament to raise funds for a new building for the sedreck fields foundation and sedreck fields scholarship fund. I know of a great golf course that loves doing charity events, and they would love to host and sponsor a golf charity event to raise money for a building for the sedreck fields foundation.
