JAYS CARE COMMUNITY CREW

The Jays Care #CommunityCrew – a collection of employees from the Toronto Blue Jays, Rogers Centre and Sportsnet, along with corporate partners – is currently looking for volunteers to assist in Jays Care initiatives throughout the 2015 Blue Jays season.

Jays Care Community Crew

Since 2012, the Jays Care #CommunityCrew 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 2014, Jays Care #CommunityCrew members volunteered their time and expertise to facilitate Jays Care Foundation's marquee events – including the Curve Ball Gala, Sportsnet Charity Broadcast Auction and 19th Annual Charity Golf Classic – as well other Jays Care and Blue Jays endeavours. Throughout the 2014 season, Jays Care #CommunityCrew members sorted canned goods at North York Harvest Food Bank, collected non-perishable food and monetary donations at the Lady Jays Food Drive, and participated in 12 Baseball Diamond Makeovers within the city of Toronto. #CommunityCrew 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 2015 Blue Jays season, Jays Care #CommunityCrew members will be responsible for a number of initiatives, including:

  • 50/50 Game Day Fundraisers: Help sell 50/50 tickets at select Blue Jays home games in support of Jays Care Foundation
  • Baseball Diamond Makeovers: Roll up your sleeves, spray on some sunscreen and help turn a field into a baseball diamond for children and youth throughout the GTA to use for baseball programming
  • Blue Jays Baseball Academy Rookie League*: Help distribute equipment to community leaders, run various baseball drills, and officiate and facilitate baseball games for children and youth participating in the Rookie League program throughout the GTA.

Jays Care #CommunityCrew volunteers are making a difference going to bat for kids in Toronto and across Canada – don't miss your chance to join the team!
