Allied Gardens Little League Snack Shack Rebuilt Thanks to Community Support
Last year, we shared the story of the Allied Gardens Little League (AGLL) and the challenges they faced during the COVID-19 pandemic. With the lockdowns, their fields were not being maintained, and their snack shack was vandalized, leading to its eventual demolition.
The loss of the snack shack was a significant blow to the AGLL, as it had been a vital source of funding for the league's operations. The cost of repairs from the vandalism was prohibitive, and the league faced an uncertain future.
That's when the Larry Himmel Neighborhood Foundation stepped in. With the help of our generous donors, we were able to raise over $12,500 to help rebuild the snack shack. The response from the community was overwhelming, and we were thrilled to be able to support the AGLL in their time of need.
On Saturday, our Board member, Roy Robertson, had the honor of attending the AGLL Opening Day festivities and presenting a plaque to commemorate the rebuilding of the snack shack. The plaque recognizes the community's support and the Larry Himmel Neighborhood Foundation's role in making this project a reality.
The rebuilt snack shack is more than just a building; it represents hope and resilience in the face of adversity. It is a symbol of the power of community support and the positive impact that we can have when we come together to support one another.
We are grateful to our donors, who made this project possible, and to the AGLL for their tireless efforts to provide a safe and supportive environment for local children to play baseball. We are proud to be able to support the AGLL and other organizations that make a difference in our community.
