Shirley Poole Legacy Foundation was formed August 19, 2020 in honor of our late mother and grandmother. Our beloved matriarch succumbed to COVID-19 during the pandemic. Ms. Shirley, as many called her, always thought about others, she was giving of her time and resources, she loved her family and friends, and enjoyed caring for the elderly. Shirley recognized the importance of staying involved and supporting others.

Shirley's legacy is honored through the foundation's organized charitable endeavors in an effort to impact our local and extended communities with outreach programs and initiatives that promote emotional healing, philanthropy, education, economic development and sustainability.
