This fund is to help with costs of cremation. Tyree's life was taken September 30, 2020. He would have been 22 years old on the 10th of October. Tyree was a close friend of Gabriel McDuffie who is a Board Member for the Winter Center for Restorative Justice. Our nonprofit organization was contacted by an annonomous donor with a matching pledge-- the donor will match, dollar for dollar, every donation, up to $500. We are hoping to raise $2,000; that is the cost of cremation services. Any funds over $2,000 will be donated directely to Hope for the Inner City, a non profit in Chattanooga, where Tyree was active in helping the community. Please help us by donating what you can-donations of any ammount will help, and will be doubled by the donor.
