“I am very happy to be here today with Woodlawn Recreation and Parks supporting their Baseball Program. Mrs. B is the 7 Eleven franchise owner and has been in the Woodlawn Community for a long time. Mrs. B really feels it is good to get her name out there and do the right thing for the community. She wants the community know 7 Eleven as a company and her has an Independent Business Owner. She wants to give back to the community and support what they are doing. We are very happy to be a part of this and it is a win-win for both 7 Eleven as well as Woodlawn Recreation and Parks. Certainly, this is something that we like to build as a partnership in years to come, so it is certainly something that we want to continue for the future and continue to support the community to help get them what they want,” John Treadway said
“I am very excited to say that we need the support of the community and very thankful for Mrs. B and 7 Eleven for presenting a $1000 check to the baseball program. This financial support will really help the baseball program out tremendously because we focused bring it back about 2 years ago and things seem to be moving in the right direction. I am looking forward for a great and wonderful year, the main thing is I want to make a difference in the community. It takes a village to raise a child, not just the parent, we all need to get involved. This is my involvement to give back to the community, to strengthen the community and be there for the kids in the community,” James Morant said.
“The community and our young men need some extra activities after school and putting them in a program helps them to bring out their own characters. We need to put some love and some concerns in our kids and bring them back to the community, let them know people care for them,” Doreen Garrett said.
“I am very excited to know that Woodlawn Baseball Program is receiving a donation from 7 Eleven, its greatly appreciated. The Baseball Program is working tremendously hard in trying to bring baseball back in the Woodlawn Community. I am just really happy that this is happening and I just hope that this wonderful thing continue to happen in the future,” Candice Goodwin said.
“The Recreation Center of the Woodlawn Community Center should be the focal point of the community. It is where all the organization should come together, it should be like a safe haven for all the young men and young ladies in the community. We think we are moving positively toward the future, we want to give our kids more, not just kicking the ball or throwing the ball, we want to emphasize Education also. There is one things I am thankful for, men like James Morant and women like Mrs. Doreen Garrett for what they are doing to bringing baseball back into the community. It was down for about 5years but they have got it up and running and looking like it going to taking another step forward,” Prince Randall said.
The Woodlawn Baseball Program welcomes back as Commissioner James Morant and Assistant Commissioner Doreen Garrett.
“I think bringing the Baseball Program back to Woodlawn is phenomenal. I think that with the support of the community, the Woodlawn Recreation Council and people like 7 Eleven making contributions to help rebuild make our baseball program productive for the kids in our community,” Aaron Barnett said.
