For those who have experienced a disaster or other tragedy, Foundation funds can provide a warm motel room, a change of clothes, or necessary items until other agencies can step in and provide long-term assistance. To continue with life as normal as possible, the Foundation is also working with the Jasper Youth Sports Association to provided grants to students in need.
Community Assistance & Disaster Relief
In addition to providing aid to individuals in times of crisis, the Foundation wants to invest in the future of Pickens County. With the creation of the Scholarship Fund, the Sheriff’s Foundation partners with those students that receive perfect attendance throughout their high school career by providing scholarships to advance their education.
Additional Scholarship opportunities exist for children that have overcome significant adversity during their educational career.
