Over twenty years ago, Kent created The Hull Foundation, whose mission is raising funds to support organizations serving the needs of less fortunate children, specifically in Mississippi.
Kent Hull had a passion for helping children that could not help themselves. Before his untimely death in 2011, he made it his goal to work tirelessly to make The Hull Foundation the strongest fundraising tool for children
in need as possible. The foundation is continued today by his family and friends.
