The Cal Ripken, Sr.  Foundation, based in Baltimore, and Niagara Cares, the philanthropic arm of Niagara Bottling, are partnering on Sept. 28 through Oct. 1 to provide two Lake County schools with new equipment and improvements to community spaces.

On Sept. 28-29, the two organizations will be at South Lake High School, 15600 Silver Eagle Road in Groveland, providing new equipment and improvements to the school’s weight room, food pantry and dance studio. Staff from the Ripken Foundation will be joined by volunteers from Niagara Bottling and representatives from the school district. On Sept. 28 from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. they will begin assembling new equipment and will hang new signage. On Sept. 29 from 12 noon to 4:30 p.m., they will complete all equipment assembly and lead coaches and student-athletes through a clinic training in their newly upgraded spaces.

On Sept. 30-Oct. 1, the organizations will be at Carver Middle School, 1200 N. Beecher Street in Leesburg, where improvements focus on the build-out of a new STEM Center. On Sept. 30 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. the group will assemble equipment, hang signage, set up computers and 3-D printers and conduct STEM training for teachers and students. Students and teachers will engage with the new STEM products on Oct. 1 from 2:45 p.m. to 4 p.m.

This event is part of an ongoing partnership between Niagara Cares and the Ripken Foundation, focused on improving community spaces and encouraging people to make healthy choices.
