Oakland A’s Celebrate MLK Day with Donation to 100 Black Men of the Bay Area, Inc.

+

To celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his commitment to creating change, the A’s today made a donation to 100 Black Men of the Bay Area, Inc. to support its Young Black Scholars program. This week, the A’s will also host a front office food drive and provide volunteer and educational resources for its staff members. 100 Black Men of the Bay Area has four primary objectives: to serve as role models and mentors for our youth; to provide scholarship assistance for our youth; to promote economic development in our community; and to promote health, wellness, and non-violence. The A’s donation will support the organization’s Young Black Scholars program, which has awarded more than $1.9 million to more than 800 Bay Area students since it was established in 1992.
