On November 3rd, the Blizzard Foundation paired two baseball teams from the Minnesota Blizzard organization with Northeast Youth and Family Services. The group of players and coaches went around to help those in need do some fall cleaning. The volunteers stopped at five different houses throughout the day raking and bagging leaves. All of these homeowners are currently dealing with adverse circumstances. This was a great opportunity for the Blizzard organization to give back to their community while helping those in need.
"We couldn't have done it without teamwork, good attitudes, and the parents." Jake Kurth Blizzard coach continued, "and of course #BlueLove."
This marks the second year the Blizzard Foundation has paired a baseball organization with Northeast Youth and Family Services. As we enter the volunteer season, the Blizzard Foundation hopes to work with other baseball organizations across the state. The upcoming goal for 2019 is to provide and complete over 1,000 hours of community service throughout the Twin Cities.
