MCCLELLAN FAMILY FOUNDATION
Paying it forward
Started at a backyard family barbecue on Chicago's South Side in 2009, the McClellan Family Foundation has raised and donated thousands of dollars to organizations focused on youth, education, and counseling. The first gift was made in memory of Brian Marshan McClellan (2008) to the Jackie Robinson West Little League and the annual gift has grown to also honor the lives of other dear family members and friends: Kimberly Ann Adamczyk (2012), John W. McClellan, Jr. (2014), and Reola McClellan (2015).
To honor the memories and lives of beloved family members while positively impacting the communities in which they lived and loved. Additionally, to continue the spirit of community, giving, and service, which were instilled as McClellan Family values by Rev. John & Mrs. Reola McClellan.
