When the Texas Dawgs were founded, we adopted a Mission Statement and Core values, which included a focus on the importance of giving back to the communities in which we play and understanding the value of service in building young men of character.
In adopting these standards and values, we require all of our players to perform community service in order to be a part of our organization. For our spring season, our first service project was gather equipment donations for The Recycled Baseball Items Foundation (RBI) and Recycled Sports Items (RSI), fellow non-profit organizations.
RBI and RSI are committed to keeping the Greater Houston Area's underprivileged youth off the streets, away from gangs, crime, and drugs, while offering them a positive and viable alternative in the form of participation in baseball/softball and other sports.
RBI accomplishes this by providing baseball, basketball, football and other sports equipment, instructional sports clinics and college scholarships to those who are exemplary in both academics and sports.
To support the cause of RBI and RSI, the Texas Dawgs engaged in a month long equipment drive requesting that players and families donate lightly used sports goods. On March 15th, RBI and RSI Foundation (RBI) picked up the items gathered by the Dawgs.
The Dawgs Organization donated over 150 items to RBI and RSI. The items donated included gloves, bats, helmets, catcher’s gear, cleats, pants, protective gear and training aids. We are hopeful these items will help further the outstanding mission of RBI and RSI.
We are so proud of our players and their families for their commitment to this project and their desire to support our community. Our players are truly “Embracing the Standard” of what it means to be a Texas Dawg!!! We are looking forward to our next community service project.
It's a blog, and we play baseball, so the blog is called the BaseBlog. Get it?
