ATLANTA (Aug. 31, 2017) – President Mark O’Neal of the Professional Baseball Athletic Trainers Society (PBATS) today announced that PBATS is donating $5,000 to the Salvation Army of Greater Houston.
In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, PBATS’ donation will provide support to disaster victims across the region who have been forced from their homes during this tragedy. Donations of all sizes will supply those communities along the Gulf Coast with much-needed food, water and shelter.
“Today, our thoughts and prayers are with those who are beginning the process of recovering from Hurricane Harvey,” O’Neal said. “As people begin to assess the damage and respond to the needs of their loved ones, it’s important for organizations of all sizes to get involved and work to support Houston residents in any way they can.”
Jeremiah Randall, Head Athletic Trainer of the Houston Astros, has seen the devastation up-close in his home city and urges other groups and societies in professional sports to get involved.
“I am so proud to be a part of the PBATS family. Not only have the reached out to me and my family during this challenging time, but they have taken the extra step by showing their love and concern for all the people of Houston.”
