Flanders Youth Collects Baseball and Softball Equipment for Those in Need

Seth Klein, 13 years old, of Flanders donated baseball and softball equipment to children in need. As part of his Bar Mitzvah, Seth had to choose a social action project called a mitzvah project. As a baseball player for Mount Olive and a fan of the game, Klein wanted his project to help fellow ballplayers. After researching charities online, he discovered Pitch in for Baseball (www.pifb.org), an organization that accepts donations of new and gently used baseball and softball equipment. They send these donations to children who want to play ball but don’t have the means to get the necessary equipment.
Klein presented his project to the Mount Olive Baseball and Softball Association board who gave him permission to speak during the 2018 opening ceremonies. They also supported him by sending an email to all ball playing families in town. Klein also set up a Go Fund Me page to collect monetary donations. On January 26, Klein rode to the
Pitch in for Baseball’s Pennsylvania office to drop off his collected donations. He was given a tour of the facilities and was able to learn more about how this organization helps ball players in need. Klein would like to thank all the families who helped him with this fabulous project.
