Patrick Shifflett loved helping his family decorate the Christmas tree every year. His height and strength made him very handy at tackling the job. But this year the Shifflett family is struggling to celebrate the season without their son and brother.They have turned their sadness into purpose by starting The Patrick Shifflett Foundation.Already successfully raising funds for their community and a scholarship fund for both Clarksburg and Damascus High Schools, the Shifflett family joyfully donated $2000 to Toys for Tots on December 13th on behalf of the Patrick Shifflett Foundation. At an event coordinated by Clarksburg Baseball Inc.,Walter, Lily, Jamie, Steven and Nick Shifflett presented the check to a representative from the Marine Corps Reserve. Because of the large donation,the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve recognized the Foundation with a Commander’s Award for outstanding achievement in support of the 2016 Toys for Tots Program. Toys for Tots helps to fulfill the Christmas dreams of our nation's neediest children. That goal is at the heart of The Patrick Shifflett Foundation and the Shifflett family will continue to work to help as many people as they can in Patrick’s name.
