Shelter seeks donations for Quakes family night

The Foothill Family Shelter’s annual baseball night is Saturday, August 20, and the nonprofit is hoping to send all of those living in its housing program to that evening’s Rancho Cucamonga Quakes game, but it needs the community’s help to do so.

“Live baseball games are fun for the whole family, and this night is sure to bring joy and happiness to those who might not have experienced a baseball game before,” the event’s description read. “Hit a home run for homeless families and help create memories that will last a lifetime below.”

Between now and August 19, residents near and far will have the opportunity to sponsor a family or child in the Foothill Family Shelter system and send them to the baseball game. The nonprofit is accepting donations using the following increments: a single is a $15 donation, a double is $25, a triple is $50, a home run is $75, and a grand slam donation is $100.

To donate go to foothillfamilyshelter.org/quakes-family-baseball-night; mail a check to 1501 W. Ninth St., Upland, California 91766; or click on its Facebook fundraiser at facebook.com/foothillfamilyshelter.

The nonprofit noted that “Facebook pays all the processing fees for you, so 100% of your donation goes directly to Foothill Family Shelter.”

The shelter hopes to raise $2,500 which would send most of its residents to the game. If additional funds are raised, the money will be allocated to its stepping stones program and made available for other children’s enrichment activities.
