DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — A Dothan family is continuing to keep the memory of their loved one alive by giving back to the community.
Savoy Jones was 15 years old when he collapsed at basketball practice for reasons that are still unknown back in 2013.
Hours later he passed away. In honor of Savoy, his family created a foundation to help not only provide a scholarship to Emmanuel Christian School students, where Savoy went to school, but also donate to nonprofits all over the Wiregrass.
Friday they provided a check of $5,000 to Jeep Sullivan Wounded Warriors Outdoor Adventures.
“We love Jeep, we love what he does for the veterans and as long as my family and I, the Savoy Family Foundation will continue,” Savoy’s Father, Christopher Jones said. “That’s what it’s all about, helping people, we continue to give a scholarship in his honor, of Savoy, we continue to support Mr. Jeep Sullivan in the Wounded Warrior Outdoors Adventures project that he does.”
