Scrappers in the Community
The Mahoning Valley Scrappers consider working with local organizations and helping to enrich the community a top priority, and have created several programs to aid in these efforts. The 2015 season will feature collaboration with local businesses to present the Scrappy's Healthy Kids program. The program aims to encourage youth to challenge themselves to make healthy choices for a better lifestyle. The Scrappers also make donations to local charities, have a ticket sales fundraising program, contribute to the New York- Penn League Scholarship Foundation, and host numerous community events at Eastwood Field.
The Scrappers are proud to support the local community not solely during the season, but on a year round basis. With over 150 live appearances a year, Scrappy can be found teaching in the classroom through the Junior Achievement program, meeting fans at the Canfield Fair, visiting local businesses and more!
