Kids in Distressed Situations (K.I.D.S.), the children’s charity has struck up a strategic partnership with the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation that will use baseball and softball themed programs to teach life lessons to at-risk youth.
As part of the year long program dubbed “Cal Sr.’s KIDS”, K.I.D.S. will donate new apparel and other baseball-themed product to support the foundation’s youth development programs.
The partnership will launch with the opening of multipurpose outdoor facilities that are under development in Annapolis and Baltimore, Maryland, Bridgeport, Connecticut, Collier County, Florida, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Houston, Texas and Fredericksburg and Richmond, Virginia.
The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation was established in 2001 by members of the Ripken family in memory of Cal Sr., a major league baseball legend who spent more than 35 years in the Baltimore Orioles organization.
