‘Miracle Cares’ will assist local charitable causes

By Staff | Dec 23, 2008

The Miracle Baseball Club have kicked off a new community initiative program — “Miracle Cares” — that will support charitable organizations throughout Southwest Florida. The Miracle front office is selecting an agency every month and donating their time to help the cause.

The staff of Miracle Professional Baseball recently spent time at the Harry Chapin Food Bank working in the warehouse, assisting with product recovery and packing boxes full of food for delivery throughout Southwest Florida.

In the Southwest Florida service area of the Harry Chapin Food Bank, 100,000 people live in poverty and too often miss meals or experience hunger. The fastest growing segments of need include children, seniors living on fixed incomes, and the working poor.

“We believe the Miracle, and all baseball clubs have a special opportunity to contribute to the community and we are committed to doing so,” said Miracle General Manager Steve Gliner.

Every year, the Miracle support hundreds of organizations by making donations to fundraising events or by simply lending a hand.

To request a donation for an upcoming fundraising effort or looking to have your organization be a part of “Miracle Cares,” please send a request in writing, on organizational letterhead, to: Fort Myers Miracle Community Relations, Attn: Joy Donahue, 14400 Six Mile Cypress Parkway, Fort Myers, FL 33912.
