Each month, EB will make a donation to a team member's choice of cause. This month we checked in with Lauren for her choice on where to give back! Here's what she said:
Name: Lauren Kelly, Sales Representative
"One of my friends recently told me about the Philadelphia Youth Sport Collaboration and after years of volunteering and coaching youth sports around Philadelphia, their mission sat heavily on my heart. After learning more about their goals, beliefs, and initiatives, I decided I wanted to get involved by choosing them for this month's donation. By giving kids the programs and opportunity to become involved in sports, especially those with limited resources, I believe will positively impact social, mental, and physical well-being. When learning more about the Philadelphia Youth Sports Collaborative, and being a former women's athlete, the initiative for Getting Girls in the Game, is particularly important to me. Since not enough girls are exposed to athletics, and physical activity this will assist them in building a network of strong women involved in sports."
