Berkeley Electric Cooperative officials presented a donation Tuesday (06/16/20) to the Town of Moncks Corner in support of the community’s Miracle League baseball field.
“We are proud to support this wonderful cause. As the Miracle League says, ‘Every child deserves a chance to play baseball,’” said Dwayne Cartwright, president and CEO of Berkeley Electric. “One of our governing principles as an electric cooperative is ‘concern for community,’ which includes providing children of all abilities with an opportunity to experience the joy of playing our national pastime — baseball.”
Berkeley Electric’s $15,000 donation is offered in conjunction with CoBank, which provides a matching grant program called Sharing Success. The cooperative was also instrumental in helping raise money for establishing the Charleston Miracle League field in West Ashley.
The Miracle League provides opportunities for children with disabilities to play Miracle League baseball through the construction of special facilities that meet the unique needs of Miracle League players and their families.
