Three Rivers Area Mentoring (T.R.A.M.) is a tremendous organization that has empowered and enriched lives of children in South Michigan for more than 20 years. T.R.A.M. has been a spectacular partner of the Turn 2 Foundation for the past 10 years, and the entire Jeter family supports and appreciates its ongoing commitment to the young people of the Three Rivers area."
