Project Uplift, the 501C3 Foundation has awarded scholarships to deserving students in excess of $200,000.00. We have been able to accomplish this mission through service in the local and surrounding communities. Our programs in the community include many sponsored events such as blood drives, voter registration campaigns, prostate awareness seminars, senior citizen visits, community beautification activities and mentoring programs to elementary, middle school and high school students and parents in the DeKalb County area.
