From 10/13 to 10/20 the generous supporters of The 6-4-3 Foundation, the charitable arm of the 6-4-3 organization, donated an impressive amount of needed supplies in Puerto Rico. Aviation Sports Complex in Marietta served as a collection site for essential items: bottled water, diapers and insect repellent. In total, 24 cans/bottles of insect repellent, 60 cases of water (1953 bottles), 1 box of baby wipes (800 wipes), 32 boxes of diapers (3964 diapers) and a cash donation of $250 were collected in response to the devastating effects of Hurricane Maria. Thank you to the many donors that made this hurricane disaster response possible and a quick success! The donated supplies have been taken to collection sites in Atlanta where they are being processed for delivery to Puerto Rico.
Nelson and Cori Pedraza (pictured at right) passed along the following heartfelt message of gratitude for everyone's efforts: "Words cannot express the gratitude of the people in our beautiful island of Puerto Rico. On behalf of our family, we personally want to thank the 6-4-3 staff, the generous people who are the 6-4-3 DP Baseball family and The 6-4-3 Foundation for making this relief drive happen. May God bless you."
The mission of The 6-4-3 Foundation is to enhance the lives of children and families through sports.
