Mets giving back to the community
In case you missed it, here’s our annual Thanksgiving story on the Mets’ charitable efforts, which this year included a Teammates in the Community Week in conjunction with the National Conference on Volunteering and Service. I thought it earned another mention here because, frankly, word doesn’t get out often enough about the many initiatives the Mets do throughout the year.
Unlike many clubs and organizations that broadcast their charity work, the Mets do theirs largely out of sight of the public eye. But they do plenty. You can see a more complete rundown of the organization’s charitable endeavors here, though even that list doesn’t count the independent foundation work of players such as David Wright and Carlos Beltran.
I’d urge anyone who is able to take part in this year’s annual Coat Drive and Blood Drive, both of which will take place at Citi Field in the coming months. In years past, donors at each event have received complimentary tickets to games at Citi Field, all for a most worthy cause.
