The Richard Sheltra Memorial Foundation is one of kind. I can't come to imagine what it is like to lose someone so close to you as they have. They have made such an impact to the Pineville/Charlotte and nation by using their foundation to bring about positivity in the community. I had the opportunity to attend a 5k run that the foundation had and it was amazing to see the support for our firefighters and the amazing work they do. Great organization run by even better people!

I have had the opportunity to see the Richard Sheltra Memorial foundation in action for a little over 2 years now. This foundation works tirelessly to give back to the community and to help whenever possible. Their dedication and commitment is like no other, and I am proud to have any opportunity to involve myself in supporting their mission!

Knowing the Sheltra family for the last several years it is obvious how much time and dedication they have show for the local community in which Richard served.
They continue to volunteer in the community and bring awareness to make sure that no one forgets the service that Richard dedicated his life to which was to protect others.
