Lunch Pail Defense Foundation

Coach Bud Foster, has combined his coined symbol, the Lunch Pail, and his personal notoriety, to create an amazing community scholarship as well as a new Organ Transplant Family Support Program.

The Lunch Pail Defense Foundation is a non-profit corporation (per IRS Code Section 501(c)(3)) whose dual purpose is to fund an academic scholarships for eligible high school students from the New River or Roanoke Valley areas, as well as assisting the families of those awaiting organ transplants.

The LPD scholarship recipient will embody the characteristics symbolized by the Lunch Pail in terms of spirit, character, work ethic and determination to succeed in all areas of life.

Our new Organ Transplant Support program is in conjunction with Duke University Medical Center, and aims to provide financial assistance to the families of those undergoing organ transplants with often prohibitive costs like longterm lodging, transportation, food, and child care, among others.

On a recent break from practice, VT Defensive Coordinator Bud Foster happily received a check for $10,000.00 from joint fund raising efforts by Dr. Pepper and local Wal-Mart Stores. Present to make the donation were Dr. Pepper Regional Manager Troy Harris and local Wal-Marts manager Mike Young. This was their second donation of the year based on their shared sales promotions of Dr. Pepper products in local Wal-Mart stores. They have now donated a total of$12,000.00 to the foundation this year and are just now completing a third promotion, whose results are not yet in. Coach Foster and the foundation are extremely grateful to the leaders of these fine companies for their generosity.

In other LPD news, the board of directors has changed their management structure to better reflect the actual duties and responsibilities of each member and officer. Effective immediately the changes are: Bud Foster, Chairman and Board member; Jim Tynan, President, Executive Director and board member; MIke Barber, Vice President, Secretary and Board member; Sally Greenfield, Treasurer and Tyson Daniel, Board Member. These changes will be reflected in their by laws and on their website.

Lastly, the LPD foundation would like to thank all of the volunteers for their hard work and thank all of their donors who make the good work they do possible.
