Patriots Baseball Collects Holiday Cheer For Less Fortunate

Patriots Baseball Collects Holiday Cheer For Less Fortunate

untitled (10 of 34)With a winning tradition established on the field, East View baseball coach Matt Pullen wants his players to start new traditions of giving back to the community.

The Patriots will donate dozens of toys to the boys and Girls club Monday after school, a tradition Pullen hopes will last for years to come.

“We’ve asked the kids to go around and get donations of new or slightly used toys,” he said.

“The Georgetown Community has been so good to us — any time we’ve had some sort of fundraiser, they’ve always given generously.”

The team started accepting donations November 25 and by December 10 they had three large boxes filled with books, Barbie Dolls, Star Wars action figures and remote controlled cars.

“It is really awesome to me when you see the looks on our kids’ faces and just see how happy they are just to be able to brighten somebody else’s day,” Pullen said.

“It’s just a little thing we can do, especially this time of year. There are some people that are unfortunate and this is just our way of trying to give back.”

Instead of going door to door asking for donations, the players either bought toys or asked friends and family to donate. They also made an announcement on the school districts website and hung fliers up around campus.

“I went out and bought as many toys as I could and told people about it, ” Junior Jacob Dauer said.

“I think it’s helpful, because we get to give back to the community for kids that aren’t as fortunate.”
