A Big THANK YOU
Every year, a company or nonprofit hopes to have their best year yet. With your help, Lost Boyz has done just that for 2014! We've served more kids than ever before, raised more money that is 100% reinvested back into the organization and the families we serve, and we've grown our volunteer base to 21 people!
None of our achievements or services provided to youth in the South Shore community could have been possible without supporters like you. Yep, that's right...Y-O-U. Whether you donated money, time, services, or told one of your friends about our organization, the Lost Boyz staff, participants, and parents truly appreciate your help. So we just want to say THANK YOU!
DONORS (Individual and Corporate), you've helped to raise money to pay for league fees, athletic insurance, uniforms and accessories, transportation, healthy snacks, and much more! Read more about our corporate donors by clicking the links on the left.
VOLUNTEERS, you all have put in countless hours both on the field and off the field to help make sure Lost Boyz runs smoothly. You help make this program possible and your selflessness insures donations can fully support our youth.
To all of our PARENTS, you endured hours in the sun this summer by cheering on the kids, grilling food during Opening Day and other games, driving them to and from various events, and much more! You too deserve some cheers this season!
And finally...to the PLAYERS. You achieved so much this year that we'll all be bragging about for the rest of 2014. Check out your stats below to see just how much work you really put in this year!
