This month we would like to put the spotlight on our very own Director of Service Learning, Credell Walls. As DofSL, Cre plans all of the volunteer activities, such as Buddy Baseball and our recent Outdoor Extravaganza with the Forest Preserve. Read more about Cre's road to success here.

 June Highlights
Below are some of the highlights from last month. As always, June was full of activities for our Boyz!
  • Our Perkle Page - During June, Perkle launched its pages for nonprofits. This innovative organization has teamed up with your favorite companies (Macy's, Amazon, and Best Buy to name a few) to offer discounts (or perks) on purchases. Best of all, when you shop through a nonprofit's page, part of the revenue is donated back to that nonprofit! So check out our Perkle page today!
  • White Sox Fundraiser - Last month, Lost Boyz and friends attended the White Sox vs Oakland Athletics Game. Despite the fact the White Sox lost, the game was interesting. Everybody spent time having much fun, enjoying the game, and eating snacks from the concession stands. After the game was an amazing fireworks show. Although we wish the White Sox had won, we look forward to the next game! Because of supporters like you and the hard work our players put in selling tickets, Lost Boyz was able to raise money to pay for little league fees and outings for our youth! Thanks again to everyone for a successful fundraiser!
  • Google Office Tour -  Last month, the Black Google Network (BGN), an employee network group, invited Lost Boyz to their downtown office to tour the facility for a day of interactive learning and lunch. Throughout the tour, Googlers (Google employees) told us about their jobs, what they do, and what kind of perks they have. Read more about our day at Google here or check out our photo album.









  • Buddy Baseball Volunteering - Buddy Baseball is a program where children with different disabilities have a chance to play baseball with a person helping them, also known as a buddy. As a major part of the core initiatives of Lost Boyz is to volunteer and help others as you would want to be helped, our players took a Sunday to go and be buddies! What can we say...the game was awesome and everyone had a great time! Read more about our Buddy Baseball outing and the Sensitivity Training Credell and Olga put on for our youth before game day. You can also check out the photo album here.
