OUR WORK IN NORTH TEXAS – DFW/ARLINGTON
Since co-founder Cole Hamels joined the Texas Rangers in late 2015, The Hamels Foundation has made a commitment to support education throughout North Texas including Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington, and all of their surrounding communities. In 2016, The Hamels Foundation held a ceremony at Winnetka Elementary School and presented checks totaling more than $35,000 to local schools and nonprofits to fund educational programs and projects.
As part of those gifts, The Hamels Foundation made a gift to help fund educational classrooms at the all-new Mercy Street baseball fields, a program through MLB and the Texas Rangers. In addition to getting the opportunity to play baseball, children will be able to utilize the classrooms for after-school tutoring programs and more.
Beginning in 2017, The Hamels Foundation will implement its annual Partners in Education Grant Program in North Texas, including Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington and the surrounding communities to provide opportunities for schools to apply for and receive grant funding.
