About The Richard Sherman Foundation
Blanket Coverage, the Richard Sherman Family Foundation, was formed in 2013 by Richard Sherman to provide students in low-income communities with school supplies and clothing so they can more adequately achieve their goals. Inspired by a significant moment in his life, his childhood idol Magic Johnson came to Dominguez High School in Compton, CA and spoke to Richard and his classmates on the importance of setting and achieving your goals. Since that time, Richard has made it his focus to preach those same sentiments and help students achieve their fullest potential.
