Importance of Community Service
The success of Bethel Diamond Sports, Inc. is a direct result of the overwhelming support that we have received from the community. The Village of Bethel, the local businesses, and individuals have enabled us to generate excitement and build a vibrant youth baseball and softball program. As an organization, coaches, parents, and players, it is our duty to give back to the community that has supported us.
Bethel Diamond Sports has received a grant from the Cincinnati Reds Community Fund. The Reds Community Fund's Youth Baseball Funding initiative provides funding and support to more than 300 baseball and softball teams. Organizations receive funding to purchase uniforms, equipment and cover various operating expenses. To continue under the RCF, we must participate in a minimum of three community service or fundraising activities each year. We would like as many parents, players, and coaches to support these worthwhile projects.
