METS LAUNCH AMAZIN’ METS FOUNDATION
Foundation Committed to Providing Needed Services & Opportunities in Neighborhoods Near Citi Field
FLUSHING, N.Y., February 26, 2021 — The New York Mets today announced the launch of the Amazin’ Mets Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the New York Mets.
The Amazin’ Mets Foundation is committed to using the platform of the Mets to inspire change and make a lasting impact — on and off the field — by providing needed services and opportunities to children, families, and under-served groups in neighborhoods and communities near Citi Field, the Mets home ballpark. The foundation can be found online at amazinmetsfoundation.org.
“Our mission is simple: to be a champion, you need to stand for something,” said Alex Cohen, Mets Owner & President of Amazin’ Mets Foundation. “It’s beyond the words of the mission. It’s about the work we will do. We’re committed to inspiring philanthropy and community service by creating awareness, offering guidance, and leading by example to show the world what giving can do.”
Alex Cohen and Mets players Pete Alonso, Carlos Carrasco, Francisco Lindor and Taijuan Walker unveiled the Foundation’s new name, logo and the Amazin’ Mets Foundation Boys & Girls Club co-branded truck today at Clover Park, the Mets’ Spring Training facility in Port St. Lucie, Fla.
