Pirates Charities is committed to strengthening the community and supporting organizations and programs that aim to improve the lives of children and adults alike. With the help of the team's fans, corporate sponsors and other community partners, Pirates Charities is proud to fulfill its mission throughout the year each and every year.
And that's not just a Pittsburgh thing. It's a Bradenton thing too.
When Pirates Charities was established in 2006, the philanthropic arm of the Pittsburgh Pirates pledged to place special emphasis on supporting youth programs that focus on health, fitness and education by developing partnerships with those who share in that mission.
In this section of our community relations newsletter, we're focusing on youth programs -- and more specifically, programs that involve education and are designed to help kids learn, grow and thrive.
