Thomas & Kelly Davis
The TDDDF was founded by Thomas Davis, a native of Shellman, GA and current member of the Los Angeles Chargers. As an NFL player, Davis has a passion for football but he also has a strong desire to help those in need and to make a positive impact on the lives of our youth. When Davis founded the TDDDF he made a decision to assist youth in realizing that their past does not determine their future and that they too can one day live their dreams.

“Through education, leadership development and volunteerism we have the power to assist students in seeing the potential of their dreams in action.” – Thomas Davis
