For the fourth year in a row, the PawSox teamed up with Jordan's furniture and collected new/used baseball equipment during the 2017 season to benefit aspiring young baseball players at the Boys & Girls Club of Pawtucket.
At every home game, fans were invited to donate equipment in red barrels that were located directly inside the Main Gate at McCoy Stadium. This season the barrels filled up quicker than ever, and the PawSox were able to donate more equipment than they ever have to the Boys & Girls Club of Pawtucket.
"This equipment changes lives," said Jim Hoyt, CEO of the Boys & Girls Club of Pawtucket. "We'd once again like to thank the Pawtucket Red Sox and Jordan's Furniture for their generosity."
"Dropping the equipment off to the Boys & Girls Club at the end of each season is something that we look forward to every year," said PawSox Director of Communications & Community Relations, Joe Bradlee. "We're able to see first-hand the impact we are making on so many young athletes in the area."
The PawSox would like to thank our fans who came out to the ballpark this season and made a difference for our local youth.
