The J.R. Goss Family Foundation is a 501(c) organization that exists to address either through direct participation or in support of those who are committed to meeting the spiritual and physical needs of the helpless and the hurting.
My father, the late Reverend J.R. Goss was a born minister. Blessed with a caring and generous spirit, he was quick to lend a hand to anyone in need regardless of color. The above quote by Dr. Martin Luther King best describes his life. Generosity was simply his way of life. I once recall a hilarious act of compassion that fell into what I consider "what were you thinking" category. It occurred early in the 60's on a return trip to California where he was living the time. On this particular journey back he stopped and picked up a hitch hiker. Later, after becoming to sleepy to drive he pulled over and allowed the hitch hiker to drive while he slept. As his descendants we're honored to continue [some parts] of his legacy of giving.
