Trench Santana  was raised in a low income community in Atlanta, Georgia. He has always been an entrepreneur starting his lawn care service at the age of 12. When this was no longer what he wanted to do he persistently visited the local Taco Bell for employment starting at age 14. He was finally hired at the age of 16.  He graduated high school and started his very own clothing line at the age of 19. He opened a store located off Bankhead Highway (now Donald Lee Hollowell Pkwy) a high crime low income area. He was determined to become a successful entrepreneur. It was at his clothing store where he got involved with the wrong crowd and would later become arrested for robbery. He’s since learned from his mistakes and is now ready to move on with his life as “The Trenches” CEO.  He continues to design clothing while incarcerated from scraps and whatever he can get his hands on to do so. Using only a paper clip and dental floss this young man has made the impossible very possible. We are asking for donations to fund a parole attorney and to ensure he continues his creativity through his online store. The donations will help with the parole attorney expenses.

Trench Santana has not only overcome his obstacles but breaking barriers to high fashion clothing.
Thank you for supporting my son with his business endeavor.

I’m so proud of my son... Even while incarcerated, he continues to make a difference in his community. He has organized a 1st Annual “The Trenches” Back to School Bash in which his team will distribute school supplies to kids in “The Trenches” on August 3, 2019 at English Park in Atlanta, Ga. from 1-3 pm.

“I want people to know my story because location doesn’t determine destination. I want to inspire others to make something out of nothing and reach their full potential without making excuses,” Shod said. “I want to be a mentor and public speaker to at-risk kids that’s following down the wrong path.”

Everybody knows starting a business can be hard and starting one while incarcerated can be extremely challenging. That’s why I’m on a mission to help my son accomplish his goals. He’s accepted his punishment and is ready to move on with his life. He hopes to bring awareness to at risk teens and open a community center. He is very appreciative. Thank you in advance for your continued support!✌❤️
