Donate Your Old Glove Campaign
In partnership with the University of Florida’s Tourism, Recreation, and Sport Management Program (TRSM), Character Loves Company, LLC launched a campaign this past spring to deliver 250 old baseball and softball gloves to underserved youth in Cuba!
CLC Founder Pete Paciorek traveled to Havana, Cuba in early March, 2017 along with students and faculty from the University of Florida. Cuba has a rich history of baseball and Coach Paciorek was able to hand deliver a glove to each and every child the group encountered in need of a glove.
The following 8-week CLD Curriculum began January, 2017:
