COLONIE, New York – Dunkin’ today delivered 200 gift cards to the coaching staff and managers of Little League Baseball programs in Albany County as a thank you for helping local children stay active this summer.
Today’s special delivery was designed to express appreciation to the local youth sports programs for their hard work to keep nearly 1,000 children mentally and physically engaged during the summer months. The gift cards will be distributed to volunteer coaches and managers with Colonie Little League; Albany American Little League; Tri-Village Little League; and Berne-Knox-Westerlo Little League.
“It’s extremely important that the children in our communities continue to experience the benefits of team sports and stay active during these unprecedented times,” said Dunkin Field Marketing Manager Eric Stensland. “The dedicated coaches of the Little League Baseball programs in Albany County have been busy keeping their teams running all summer long and Dunkin’ is proud to support these everyday heroes.”
“We are so appreciative to Dunkin’ for recognizing the volunteers who have helped to ensure our youth would have a positive Little League Baseball experience during these challenging times,” said Little League Baseball NY District 13 Administrator Lenny Ricchiuti. “Baseball is a team sport and we are proud to have Dunkin’ on our team assisting with the development of our youth.”
