FORT MYERS, Fla. (June 2, 2015) – The Boston Red Sox recently donated $5,000 to Community Cooperative as a follow-up to its fifth annual week of giving back to communities in Southwest Florida.
In March, members of the Red Sox uniformed personnel and front office staff performed a day of community service that included volunteering at Community Cooperative.
Volunteers prepared nutritious meals for the hungry in Southwest Florida through Community Cooperative’s Community Café and Marketplace, and Meals on Wheels programs.
“For many years we have supported various fundraisers in Southwest Florida, and five years ago, we began adding additional activities to highlight the good work of organizations in Lee County that, every day, are serving people here who are most in need,” said Katie Haas, senior director of Florida business operations.
The Red Sox Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization and the official team charity of the Boston Red Sox. The foundation’s primary focus locally is in serving the health, education, recreation, and social service needs of children and families across Southwest Florida. The Red Sox Foundation is one of the most successful in all of Major League Baseball.
