DAPHNE, Ala. (WKRG) — Backpacks, paper, pencils and notebooks loaded tables at Joe Louis Patrick Park Wednesday. All of the supplies free to families in need thanks to Demarcus Rudolph.
Rudolph says it’s all part of his foundation “Mary’s Dream” in honor of his grandmother Mary Rudolph, “She was the person that helped everybody so I’m just following what she did and keeping it going. ” says Rudolph. “She died a few years ago so somebody got to pick up the torch and keep it going.”
Rudolph heads back to the University of Alabama in a couple of days to finish his degree in special education, something else he says his grandmother inspired him to do.
