HRC’s Pete Nunn has coached youth football for more than 32 years. During that time, he did more than develop the skills, motivation, and fitness of players and teams. Many of the youngsters he worked with had needs that went beyond the game, and Pete noticed.
When COVID hit in 2020, Pete started Brother Let Me Be Your Shelter, a not-for-profit that helps youth in a variety of ways. Named after the 2014 Needtobreathe song, this organization helps members of the Georgia communities in which he’s lived and worked, including those in Bartow, Cobb, and Douglas Counties, in a variety of ways, including:
- ACT/SAT tutoring to help players get the scholarships they need to go to college
- Delivering food to families at Thanksgiving time
- Making sure there are presents under the tree when otherwise there might not be
- Giving kids empowering experiences like a weekend out of town
“We see need,” said Pete, “and we don’t say no.” To Pete and his team of volunteers, the kids come first. Pete’s plan is to grow the program and blueprint it into more communities. As a company, HRC is a proud supporter of this worthy organization.
