The Jays Care Community Crew – a collection of employees from the Toronto Blue Jays, Rogers Centre and Sportsnet, along with corporate partners and Jays Care volunteers – is currently looking for volunteers to assist in Jays Care initiatives throughout the 2014 Blue Jays season.
Since 2012, the Jays Care Community Crew has made a commitment to: acting as a channel for individuals to become involved in the betterment of our community; providing meaningful, engaging volunteer opportunities for individuals passionate about making a positive impact through sport and education; and assisting Jays Care Foundation initiatives and efforts towards breaking barriers to sport and education for Canadian children and youth.
In 2013, Jays Care Community Crew members volunteered their time and expertise to facilitate Jays Care Foundation's marquee events – including the Curve Ball Gala, Sportsnet Charity Broadcast Auction and 18th Annual Charity Golf Classic – as well other Jays Care and Blue Jays endeavours. Throughout the 2013 season, Jays Care Community Crew members sorted canned goods at North York Harvest Food Bank, collected non-perishable food and monetary donations at the Lady Jays Food Drive, and helped brighten the holiday season for 153 families participating in the Birchmount Bluffs Neighbourhood Centre and the Neighbourhood Centre's Share Christmas Program. Crew members could be seen throughout the city of Toronto, gloves in hands, training Rookie League leaders and ensuring Rookie League programs across the city ran smoothly and efficiently; they were found in the Jays Care Community Clubhouse, hosting charitable groups throughout the entire season, and helped raise even more funds for Jays Care at initiatives such as the Garage Sale.
Throughout the 2014 Blue Jays season, Jays Care Community Crew members will be responsible for a number of initiatives, including:
