Detroit, July 14, 2017 - Baltimore Ravens NFL Player, Carl Davis, the founder of Trenchwork Foundation along with Brandon Jackson, founder of Greatness Camp, are partnering to give back to their community. Both native Detroiters are giving their time and resources to help kids in the community they once lived. “I came home to be in the TRENCHES,” said Carl Davis.
Trenchwork Foundation and Greatness Camp will provide five students from Mackenzie Elementary-Middle School with lunch and a back-to-school shopping spree at Walmart. Students will take a limousine to Walmart where they will have lunch and shop with Mr. Davis. Later, Carl and Brandon will speak with the Westside Stealers PAL youth football team to share their experiences and provide support. A surprise donation will also take place, as there will be a donation made to team. Immediately following will be a visit to Cody High School football teams where a meet-and-greet will take place and backpack give-a-way.
Trenchwork Foundation: Carl Davis was born and raised in one of Detroit's most disadvantaged neighborhoods. During Carl's early childhood the area was healthy and thriving, but due to the loss of jobs, the increase in crime, and lack of other essential resources, people began to flee the city. From this came Carl's inspiration for the Trenchwork Foundation, with a mission to "Build a Community" and to rejuvenate Detroit's toughest areas into a thriving community full of opportunities.
