A big baker is hoping to shed some light on the Delaware County juvenile baseball team, which caught the area’s attention en route to the 2023 Little League World Series.
Bimbo Bakeries — headquartered in Horsham, in neighboring Montgomery County — announced in a press release that they have supported the Media Little League and other youth teams across the United States
The fundraiser is to help install lights at the Media Little League complex in Media, where the team plays and trains.
This fundraiser runs now through September 15th and Bimbo Bakeries will match 100% of all donations made.
“We are so proud of our home team that the Little League World Series came together this year,” said Dana Connors, vice president of corporate affairs at Bimbo Bakeries USA, in the press release. “Bimbo Bakeries USA is headquartered in the Philadelphia area, and as the area’s home baker, we want to build on that momentum, include everyone who enjoyed their ride this summer, and brighten up their facility!”
There is an opportunity for companies and individual donors to support the initiative.
