The Foundation came to life because of the vision of Preston Mitchum, Jr., a news photographer in Baltimore. This position enables him to capture the sights and sounds of local stories of personal tragedies on tape. It has also sparked his passion to make a difference in our community. The Foundation is an organization dedicated to empowering and informing through educational television documentaries. Each of us can also empower those in need by simply giving back. The Foundation provides people the opportunity to give back, including volunteering for the clothing and toy drives as well as making financial contributions.
