Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

(WBNG) -- The Joe Santacrose Foundation is the winner of a two-thousand dollar grant from Upstate Shredding through Southern Tier Tuesdays.

The Joe Santacrose Foundation was started in memory of Joe Santacrose, who passed away from congenital heart disease after he collapsed at the end of a soccer game in December 1999, when he was 13 years old.

Over the past 21 years, the non-profit has helped children who can't afford to play sports by providing tuition, uniforms, and equipment.

The Joe Santacrose Foundation currently collects furniture and home items for people in need.

Jim Santacrose, Joe's dad, said they strive to remember and represent the spirit of Joe through the foundation.

The foundation is currently collecting twin, full, and queen beds for people in need.
