North Texas Amateur Baseball League Helps Feed Kids in Need


Every year local elementary schools have been the beneficiary of food donations to help feed families around the holidays.  Donations come from both from students, local PTA food drives and organizations like LOVEPACS, http://www.lovepacs.org/plano/ 

This year it looked like at least one school, Weatherford Elementary, would not have the needed donations to meet demand. 

That's when Michele Mecca, wife of Gerry Mecca, Treasurer of the North Texas Amateur Baseball League, reached out to the NTABL foundation for help.  In 2015, the 28-year old league reformed as a IRS 501(c)(3) Charity and, though they have always been known for generosity (see past articles, ) the foundation acted quickly and was able to get enough food boxed up to feed three families for two weeks. 

"LOVEPACS will be providing food for Weatherford Elementary this winter break.  If you would like to participate, that would be wonderful," Michele wrote.  Kirk Pruitt, league president's response was short but sweet, "Lets do it! What do we need to do?" Later on a phone call he shared, "this is exactly the kind of help we love doing.  Though we can't always respond this quickly, everything fell into place for the school."

The North Texas Amateur Baseball Foundation provided the support and Michele and others packed their boxes for delivery to Weatherford the week before the Winter break.  If you would like to help the kids and their families in the Texas communities, please click on the highlighted LOVEPACS link above.
