After witnessing the crippling effects of poverty, violence, and substance abuse of community children and families every day, veteran WMAR-TV video journalist, Preston Mitchum, Jr., founded the Preston Mitchum, Jr. (PMJ) Foundation in 2002. His vision for the foundation is to effect major change in the Baltimore Metropolitan community by enriching the lives of children and adults who desperately need assistance. The foundation fuels his passion to encourage others to make a difference in our community. The foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization dedicated to providing people the opportunity to donate their time by volunteering for donation drives, youth initiatives, and making financial contributions for organization projects.
