Nesmith Chevrolet is one of 10 Chevrolet dealers from the Savannah area that partnered with local youth baseball parks/leagues through the Chevy Youth Baseball Program and helped raise close to $47,765 in donations from the dealership and private parties.
The program consisted of several components including sports equipment, monetary and vehicle donations, as well as free baseball clinics for the youth.
Now in its third year, Chevy Youth Baseball establishes a connections between dealererships and their communities. Nesmith Chevrolet was partnered with Liberty County Recreation Department and Fort Stewart Army base. During the season, Nesmith donated team equipment kits, which included equipment bags, baseballs, ball buckets and T-shirts and made a $500 donation to both LCRD and Fort Stewart Army base. The dealership also helped donate a Chevy Tahoe SUV, which was raffled off by participating Savannah area leagues, including LCRD and Fort Stewart. These leagues collected $17,765 in raffle ticket profits. Chevy Youth Baseball also sponsored youth baseball clinics led by The Ripken Group, which provided players with instruction from the pros.
"We are excited to make such a substantial donation to Liberty County Recreation Department and Fort Stewart Army base and enjoyed partnering with them this season," said Mike Reed of Nesmith Chevrolet. "Chevy Youth Baseball gave us the opportunity to illustrate our commitment to the youth and families in Hinesville, and we're glad to have achieved such positive outcomes for the community."
