To continue Mitch’s legacy of helping others live a meaningful life with a smile despite obstacles and hardships – – one family, and one child at a time.
The Mitch22 Foundation seeks to advocate financially and emotionally for families and deserving youths who encounter life’s circumstances beyond their control.
Each year a $1,000.00 scholarship is provided to a deserving Terry Parker senior that has faced obstacles during their high school career.
The scholarship can be used to assist with basic needs as they prepare for college. Knowing that high school seniors need support in many areas, this scholarship can be used for dorm room set-up, travel to college, lodging or as a means to show students that their determination to finish school despite obstacles is being rewarded.
The Smile For Mitch Basketball Shootout was created through an athletic bond that began with basketball but ended up with a brotherhood between Mitch and Parker’s former girls’ basketball coach, Javon Cummings.
Dedicated to his high school alma mater, Terry Parker High School and his good friend, Coach Cummings, The Mitch22 Foundation proudly supports the girls’ basketball team by providing shooting jerseys, practice uniforms, Coach’s Reception and Financial Assistance.
