Shedrick always been involved with serving in the community. While in Minnesota, he helped build an event called Action Day with Greater Twin Cities United Way. The event brought in over 4,000 volunteers to help fill backpacks with school supplies. After the event the recipients, nonprofits, and school districts picked up the backpacks and distributed them to at-need students. Backpacks for elementary schoolers contained paint, crayons, pencils, and other supplies; while backpacks for middle and high schoolers contained folders, a flash drive, a three-ring-binder, pencils, pens and more. The goal of raising 50,000 backpacks was reached in 2019!
When Shed G is not working on his shows or traveling the nation performing, he loves running his mentor program, “Shed’s G’s Little Gentlemen” at Blue-Ribbon Award-Winning Friendship Academy. This program exposes young men with tools to help them become successful with conquering challenges life might present.
