February 11, 2019 - International League (IL) - Lehigh Valley IronPigs News Release

IronPigs Charities, the philanthropic branch of the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, recently announced the 22 recipients of the 2019 Community Grants. Grants, which totaled $52,687, were provided to the following organizations in support of educational and recreational programs for youth in the greater Lehigh Valley.

"These grants are made possible through the proceeds of multiple fundraising outlets conducted during our games throughout the season," said IronPigs Charities Chairman Kurt Landes. "We received 80 grant applications from many worthy community non-profits. While the decision was difficult, we are excited that the projects selected by our Board of Directors will use the funds to provide positive experiences for children that often go without these sometimes transformational opportunities because of economic and other access barriers. We thank all Lehigh Valley IronPigs fans for their support of IronPigs Charities. It is through your generous donations that that these grants are possible."
