Yankees and Charity Work: Hope Week

It's baseball season, and I'm a Yankees fan, so it seems appropriate to report that the Yankees will engage in Hope Week next week.  The new project, added to the other charitable activities ball players routinely do, will have every member of the Yankees roster spend some time with a person or family or group that needs or deserves something special.  The players and their manager have divided into five groups and will visit a Little League player whose cerebral palsy has confined him to a wheelchair, a terminally ill man, children whose disease prevents them from being in the sunlight, two developmentally challenged workers from a law firm's mailroom, and a husband and wife who mentor neighborhood children.

It's not nonprofit law, but it's a nice story.  Go Yankees!
