Locomotive and Chihuahuas Team Up to Support Non-Profits
The El Paso Chihuahuas and El Paso Locomotive FC are teaming up to utilize their marketing, promotions, development, and operations staff to help assist various local non-profit groups affected by COVID-19. "We are in the live event business and during this window when those events are severely limited, we cannot provide the level of service and memorable experiences we strive to deliver at Southwest University Park, MountainStar Sports Group President Alan Ledford said in a press release. "While the (non-profit) traditional functions are impacted by the pandemic, we are proud to offer our staff to help these NPOs continue to fulfill their respective missions."
The Chihuahuas Volunteer Pack and the Locomotive Heart of Goal are El Paso-wide volunteer forces to give back to the community and surrounding regions. Both programs are presented by Helen of Troy. "We said from the beginning that this would be about more than baseball," said MountainStar Sports Group Sr. Vice President and Chihuahuas General Manager Brad Taylor in the official release. "With a little more bandwidth than usual for the baseball staff, we have the chance to truly be effective and even more helpful in our community."
The Chihuahuas and Locomotive combine for more than 750 volunteer community service hours each year. They have participated in a variety of projects, including home building to sorting food. The Chihuahuas Volunteer Pack and Locomotive Heart of Goal have established an online form to fill out if a non-profit is interested in their assistance.
