We have an awesome opportunity to come together and make GREAT things happen. As we all know the devastation that Hurricane Harvey has left, we would like to do something to assist them. I know the numbers of those in need are many but with all of us pitching in together, we could help and make a difference for some.  Working together we can reach a larger number and have a greater impact.

let’s work together

Let’s ALLTEAM UP” to do something good for others but we need to act quickly.

We (District 3) are working alongside a Texas contact that I was very fortunate to meet at a Babe Ruth World Series tournament and a Hurricane Relief Organization to make sure that we send what is allowed and needed.  I thank you in advance for any and all that you and your league can do. We are hoping to pull this together and ship this out by Sept 14th. Please bring your donations, packages and items to the Sept 10th scheduling meeting or if you have items, supplies or anything that you would like to drop off now, please contact Erika Smith…352-258-3045 or waldorecreation@gmail.com. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Erika Smith (info above), John Kelley (386-916-1214) or Brian & Mary Mallard (352-262-9820).
