On Saturday, January 5th, about 17 Milton Baseball players delivered just shy of 200 new towels to the Salvation Army's Red Shield Shelter in Atlanta.
We would like to thank all of the players and parents who joined us today for the visit and tour at The Red Shield Shelter in downtown Atlanta. I know from talking to several players and parents that this was a rewarding investment of time for all who went. We’d also like to thank everyone who participated in the towel drive. Your generosity to help those in the most need is definitely noticed and valued.
In talking with Sgt. Janeane Schmidt, Director of Red Shield Services and the Shelter (we all met her), she was very impressed with the number of players who joined us today, and she is very appreciative of everyone's efforts. Hopefully, the tour gave a glimpse into life’s challenges that can hit us, our friends, and our families at any time—often very unexpectedly.
A number of you asked how to get involved, how to volunteer, and how to reach Janeane. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org and 404-550-4980. As she shared with us today, the Shelter relies heavily on donations for towels and other personal items for the 325-bed facility, and it relies on volunteers for many activities. There are also internships and other opportunities, as we discussed before the tour.
Thank you again, on behalf of the Milton Baseball program and The Salvation Army’s Red Shield Services. I hope that everyone who joined us today, as I did, counted your blessings after seeing how life can turn and be very challenging for many, and realize just how blessed you are where you are right now in life. And for the players, perhaps give your parents a special hug tonight and say “thank you” for what they do to provide for you each and every day.
