OverviewLittle league teams, school bands, church groups, and the Boy and Girl Scouts are just a few of the organizations that have benefited from our volunteer program that puts more than $100 million back into the communities throughout America each year. Sportservice prepares members of not-for-profit groups to staff concession stands, giving them an opportunity to raise money for their organizations and be part of the excitement of major league baseball.
If your club or association is made up of energetic and enthusiastic people who enjoy working with the public, consider helping out at our next Cardinals game or special event. You could be part of the team behind the team, serving thousands of guests who come to games and special events. We'll train you and give you all the information you need to succeed.
Here are a few letters from recent Sportservice volunteers describing their experience at the ballpark:
Immanuel Luthern Elementary school in Wentzville, Missouri
With our fundraising efforts at Busch stadium, we were able to supply each student with a pencil bag, pencils, sharpeners, and, a few extra treats for their first day of school this year. We also started a new accelerated reader program for our third, fourth, and fifth graders. We even donated $1,000 to our library to purchase new books.
The Christian Service Center,Inc.
The experience has been rewarding, both in terms of the funds generated and the time spent in such an endeavor. The Supervisors have been consistently helpful and friendly. We were very pleased with our stand manager; he was always courteous to both the volunteers and the guests. It is his upbeat attitude that helps to make each fund-raising event such a pleasant experience.
The Pawnee Assembly of God Church
Our volunteers participate on a regular basis in the Sportservice Fundraising Program. We appreciate the opportunity to help Busch Stadium, and at the same time raise funds for our youth group "Generation Christ".
Alexian Brothers Salus Place
Please accept my heartfelt gratitude for the recent gift of $837.73. Proceeds from concession sales at a recent Cardinals game, where our community helped serve concessions. Your gift allows us to create Salus Place, a Place where people with AIDS, can find shelter, grow in physical and spiritual strength, learn practical life skills, and reach their full potential.
