Cole Gordon’s tragic passing at the young age of 17 brought to light his love of community through his extensive volunteerism. Born and raised in Friendswood, Texas, he followed in his family’s footsteps giving time to worthy causes. Starting with the Lighthouse Charity Team – feeding people in need, he ventured on to FFA, raising farm animals for show, while spending endless hours helping the Friendswood Fire Department, Police and Emergency Medical Service Departments, the Rotary Club of Galveston, Galveston County Emergency Response, the Friendswood Chamber of Commerce, along with many of his friends from FFA.
In the last 9 years of his life, Cole’s volunteering activities spanned 750 charitable events and touched the lives of over 500,000 people.
Cole was known throughout the community for his “Helping Hand”.
When there was a need, Cole was there.
This foundation will continue the dedication to service lived by Cole and now shared with others.
