MLB Philanthropic August 2019 Update

Dear Members,
 
I hope everyone is having a great summer.  I wanted to provide you all with our quarterly philanthropic update.  Please take a few minutes to update yourself on what we've accomplished over the last few months and our call to actions.
MLB 2019 aGBS: MLB Scholarships
MLB provided two scholarships worth $2,500 each to Stavros Lahanis (U of I) and Cici Zhang, pictured here:  Both students are children of immigrants and will be the first in their families to attend college.  
Titan's Helping Titans
MLB donated $3,800 towards purchasing the school supplies to all 150 students in need.  Yesterday a group of volunteer students and parents go together and assembled these backpacks.  This was only achievable because of MLB's generous donation.  In previous years they simply had a closet where students would go and take what they need when they needed it.  They have never had everything provided in a backpack day one of the school year.  
Special thanks to Pat Garvey and Garvey Office Supplies.  The materials were provided at cost and at a reduced rate due to the volume.  In the past the same purchase at Staples by one of the THT volunteers would've cost $6K+.  
Youth Services - Mentor Program
On June 26 a group of MLB Members (Distler, R Eshoo, Leone) took a group of mentees out to McGraw Wildlife Mentoring for a day of fishing.  If you're able and willing, we are always looking for more Mentors this is a fantastic program, please reach out to Robb Leone. 
I'm going to be sending another email, under separate cover for our "Call to Action".  Thank you everyone for all you do and please reach out if you have any suggestions or questions.  
Best regards,
TJ
