Josh Reddick Foundation donates $10,000 to SEHS, ECHS

The Josh Reddick Foundation made two donations of $10,000, one to South Effingham High School and the other to Effingham County High School, Monday morning during a check presentation in the cafeteria of South Effingham High.

Members of the foundation presented the checks to representatives from each of the two schools and posed for photos on the stage.

Reddick, a former Mustang and current outfielder for the first-place Houston Astros, has been giving back to his community for years.

“Josh has been an advocate for this county and community for as long as he has been in the big leagues,” Donna Shepard, Secretary for the Josh Reddick Foundation said. “He began the foundation several years ago and has always given back to the community – this is one of the ways the foundation has given back. I think it was quite easy for him to donate. Since the foundation originated, we’ve done several fundraisers – this is just one of the ways.”

Reddick is currently hitting .310 for the Astros with 11 homeruns, 55 RBIs and seven stolen bases. The Astros are currently 71-40, which is the second-best record in all of Major League Baseball.

Along with the donation to each school, WJCL’s Frank “The Big Guy” Sulkowski was also gifted a personalized Astros jersey.
