Honda Lends a Hand to Staten Island Little League Teams in Post-Hurricane Recover Effort

April 30th, 2013 by

For many here on the east coast, the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy is still a very present problem.  The super storm caused a tremendous amount of damage to homes, parks, vehicles, and more, many of which are still trying to fully recover.  Honda has lent a helping hand in many aspects of the recovery efforts, and its next project is to make sure that kids get to participate in a special American pastime this summer by donating money to fellow New Yorkers to help rebuild Little League facilities in Staten Island.

Honda has been the official sponsor of Little League Baseball for some time now, and by donating $50,000 to the cause, it’s solidifying its role as a key supporter of the popular organization.  This money will go towards repairing dugouts, bleachers, and the field itself just in time for opening day.  32 different teams play in this league, and other fundraising events were held on the first day of the season to bring the community together and to raise money for other projects that will arise throughout the season.

We’re not taking about your average bake sale type of fundraiser, either; the automaker sponsored “Sing Badly for a Good Cause: Car-e-oke,” during which people climb into a Honda Odyssey and do their worst to sing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.”  For each person who participated, the company donates $50 to the Staten Island Little League.
