Have you dreamed of making history? Of course, we all have. And now we have a chance to be a part of your community's day of giving - an opportunity to unite our community around causes in which we truly believe and help nonprofit organizations connect to the larger community.

 

We need your help! Please join our campaign and help us reach our goal of $8000+ to help start this year’s initiative HOMERUN HEALTH - which encourages mental well-being, physical exercise, and access to healthy foods. 

The Jackie Robinson Park of Fame Inc. (JRPOF) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring youth to create positive change and espouse the values of Jackie Robinson's life and legacy - courage, confidence, perseverance, leadership, commitment, integrity and service. After Jackie’s historic Major League Baseball career, he settled in Stamford, CT, where he raised his family and hosted socially- conscious fundraising events. 

The JRPOF is committed to continuing the groundbreaking impact of Robinson's athletic and altruistic lifestyle by promoting holistic efforts based on health and wellness in marginalized communities. Your donation will help support our HOMERUN HEALTH – Culinary program that is design to facilitate our community to learn the skills, knowledge, and art to cooking to help our families to eat and live healthier lives. 

 

We need you to tell your friends and family members about the important work we do and ask them to join us in helping to make a difference. Get ready to give!
