Grand Slam Volunteers!

Keep Akron Beautiful teamed up with volunteers coordinated by the BVU: Center for Non Profit Excellence to do a little renovating for the Akron Racers at Firestone Stadium on July 24th. With the help of the Community Pride Trailer and a few yards of mulch provided by the City of Akron, volunteers were able to get some serious work done!

These volunteers did an amazing job! You can see the results of their hard work the next time you stop out for a Racers home game!
