MLB.COM: "Boys & Girls Clubs Pitch in for Earth Day"
Volunteering in Astoria

Major League Baseball partnered with its official charity, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, to enhance the Variety Boys & Girls Club in Astoria, N.Y. in celebration of Earth Day. About 20 employees from MLB came to the Club to work with our kids on a variety of projects that included construction, gardening and design.

The volunteers worked on revitalizing the club, which included planting flowers and food such as spinach and kiwi. They also enhanced the club's media room by painting objects on the wall in the basement. Scotts Miracle-Gro, the official lawn and garden company of MLB, donated materials to support the landscaping project.
