Giving Back Without Expectations -
The Legacy Of T.Y. McGill
T.Y. McGill Jr.'s father instilled in him the importance of giving back without expecting anything in return. This value greatly impacted T.Y. and has been a driving force in his life. Inspired by his father's selflessness, T.Y. started a foundation to help young people in need. Growing up in a rural area near the Florida Georgia Line, T.Y. experienced firsthand the lack of resources available to his community. He is passionate about providing opportunities for others to succeed and make a positive impact, just like his father did for him.
Create Opportunities For A Brighter Future In Southeast Georgia
Jesup, Georgia may be small, but its lack of resources has left its children without access to essential facilities. There are no city gyms available for them to use, leaving them with no safe place to build their strength and stay active. The absence of after-school programs has also limited their opportunities to explore new interests and hobbies. Unfortunately, without these resources, many local children end up on the streets, unaware of the opportunities they could have had.
