April 12, 2019 | Featured Partners Project Highlights
Longtime partner Wilson Sporting Goods teamed up with us again in 2019 for the second year of a Pitch In For Softball Signature Project in their backyard of Chicago, Illinois. Wilson generously donated all of the equipment for this project – valued at over $30,000 – which included softballs, catcher’s gear, helmets, bats, gloves, and a team bag. In addition, each Chicago Public School team received apparel items that were generously donated to PIFBS by Under Armour. Wilson hosted some of the schools at their Chicago headquarters to pick up their equipment and also had some of their employees speak to the students about their journey to working at Wilson and what their job entails. Special thanks to our friends at Wilson for making this project a possibility again this year and for their commitment to helping kids in Chicago and around the world play ball!
