Flying Squirrels Charities
Flying Squirrels Charities is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving lives in the Richmond community. The organization launched in 2014 and since its inception has been focused on "Renovating Richmond's Recreation" an impactful community project designed to renovate youth baseball facilities. Renovations for many of the fields are already underway with the assistance of Richmond Raceway Cares, Barton Malow and Henrico County Vocational Technical Education Foundation (HCVTEF).
Flying Squirrels Charities has collaborated with the City of Richmond to identify the youth fields most in need of assistance within the community. The needs of these fields are being addressed and enhanced to make each area a welcoming space to learn and play baseball. Flying Squirrels Charities has the unique ability to connect the Flying Squirrels brand with the Greater Richmond community in an effort to optimize results through FUNN and versatile fundraising campaigns that benefit the Richmond community.
Below is a list of the fields we've been able to complete so far thanks to the continued efforts of the community:
Bellemeade Community Center
