Burrow delivered a notable Heisman Trophy speech in 2020, speaking about poverty in Southeast Ohio, which resulted in donations of more than half a million dollars to the Athens County Food Pantry.

“I believe everyone has a responsibility to do good,” Burrow said. “We will build on our efforts to address food insecurity by also finding ways to offer assistance in Greater Cincinnati, other parts of Ohio, Baton Rouge and Louisiana,” Burrow said.

Joe’s parents, Jimmy and Robin, started the foundation with their son. Jimmy will serve as Vice President and Robin will serve as Secretary and Treasurer.

“Words cannot express how proud we are of Joe and his many talents,” said Jimmy. “His dedication to improving the lives of the less fortunate is of particular importance to our family.”

“As an elementary school teacher and principal, I see kids growing and thriving every day,” said Robin. “I also recognize the stress and challenges that students and their families face. We are committed to bringing people and resources together to make a difference. We hope that you can join us on this journey.”
