The 10th Annual Covering the Bases is tomorrow, September 15.
While we are a sponsor, Acworth Police Department is also in need of volunteers to help with this event. Volunteers are needed from 6 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
‘Covering the Bases’ is an award winning program that raises awareness and funds to support the Horizon Field. The field is a synthetic surface which allows children with physical and cognitive disabilities to play organized sports. 100% of all proceeds from ‘Covering the Bases’ go directly to Horizon Field.
Please email Kim or Tammy if you are available and would like to offer your time for this worthy cause.
The gift card shipment that we planned to send Friday, September 8th was postponed until this Friday, September 15 as a result of not only our weather, but the fact that Houston is still working on their infrastructure and we wanted to be sure they wouldn’t get there and be delayed/misplaced/lost.
We cannot thank you enough for the generous donations so many of you have made, and continue to make. Thank you!
**We have been asked about help for Irma victims, and will do something if we can, but that may be a while as their infrastructure is far worse than Houston’s and most cannot even return home yet. We will keep you posted.
