Let’s Give Charitable Campaign:
On Friday, manager Joe Maddon will continue his “Respect Community” charity T-shirt initiative by representing the Cubs Scholars program, which offers quality scholarship and financial contributions for Chicago inner-city high school students. The program is designed to promote academic achievement and encourage post-secondary educational advancement. Each class of Cubs Scholars collectively receives $100,000 in scholarships and participates in a Cubs College Prep program, where they are paired with a Cubs associate who serves as a mentor as they prepare for college.
On Saturday, the Cubs Wives will offer #WeAreGood T-shirts in the main concourse by Gate F. The shirts, inspired
by catcher Miguel Montero’s popular Twitter hashtag, will be available for a $25 donation benefiting Cubs Charities and
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana.
