On Jan. 18, Paulding County Sheriff Gary Gulledge attended a Bar-B-Que fundraiser event in the Burnt Hickory Community to benefit North Paulding High School senior Josh Davis. Josh was born with only one kidney and has Stage 5 Focal and Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) Kidney Disease. FSGS Kidney Disease affects the kidney’s ability to filter blood in the body. Josh’s father is donating one of his kidney’s to Josh, but the family is still in need of donations to help cover the cost of the operation.

When Sheriff Gulledge heard about Josh and his health problems, along with the expenses they were going to incur, he spoke with the “Cops for Kids” Board of Directors about making a donation. The “Cops for Kids” Board of Directors voted unanimously and approved a monetary donation to Josh and his family. Sheriff Gulledge remarked, “Cops for Kids is a program that is designed to help kids year round when they are in need. I am glad to be able to help such a fine young man like Josh.” He further explained, “We wish him the best of luck in his upcoming surgeries.”
