A teacher by profession, Douglas Grant supports his community on a personal level as well. As an experienced teacher, Douglas Grant is an active supporter of Trinity Oaks Foundation, which offers hunting and fishing experiences, as well as food for families in need.

For veterans, children, individuals with disabilities, and patients with terminal illnesses, Trinity Oaks Foundation offers participatory programs that are both enjoyable and healing. Its hero celebrations for military service personnel provide the therapeutic experience of hunting and fishing in scenic natural settings. Through such adaptations as a customized all-terrain wheelchair, and accommodations for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the foundation strives to ensure that any veteran can enjoy the experience.

The foundation also offers a wide variety of hunting, fishing, and outdoor adventure programs for young people. Its middle and high school programs challenge adolescent participants to develop such skills as archery, orienteering, and survival skills, as well as self-confidence, while its children’s events introduce participants to the satisfaction of outdoor hunting adventures. Furthermore, through its Dream Trips program, the Trinity Oaks Foundation offers such adventures to those with terminal illnesses and physical disabilities.

Trinity Oaks Foundation also maintains a complete meat processing and distribution center. There, the organization handles approximately 7,000 pounds of meet per year. The organization donates this meat to shelters, food banks, and orphanages, where approximately 1,150 individuals per day receive a healthy meal full of protein.
