Charleston Hope has been awarded a $500 grant through the Minor League Baseball CommUNITY initiative. The local non-profit was nominated by the Charleston RiverDogs for one of five available grants awarded for 2020.
“Charleston Hope is one of many non-profits that we partner up with,” said Director of Community Outreach, Chris Singleton. “Them being there each and every day for teachers and students in Title One schools is something that made an impact on me and inspired me to be part of the change.”
The grant comes as many schools around the Lowcountry and the nation are beginning a new school year. However, this year looks considerably different.
“This organization is needed now more than ever with the new normal for schools this year,” said Singleton.
Charleston Hope’s mission is to “enhance school culture and climate in high-poverty, Title 1 schools by building on the strengths of students, teachers and leaders.”
“We are thrilled to receive this grant from the MiLB on behalf of the RiverDogs,” said Emily Kerr, Executive Director of Charleston Hope. “In a season like this, our mission is more critical than ever. This grant money will enable us to provide back to school supplies and basic needs for students beginning school both in person and online in September.”
This year’s MiLB CommUNITY grant recipients along with Charleston Hope, are the Young Black Leadership Alliance (Charlotte Knights), El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank (El Paso Chihuahuas) and ¡HICA! (Birmingham Barons) and Dreams Go On (Altoona Curve).
