Nelson and Junior Giants Form a Strong Community Team

Sonoma, California, December 20, 2010 – Nelson is a family run company whose founding family loves the San Francisco Giants.

The team’s 2010 World Series win brought on feelings of such pride and enthusiasm that the company sought a way to share its joy. The solution became an MVP donation to the Junior Giants, the flagship program of the Giants Community Fund.

Junior Giants is a free, non-competitive, innovative baseball program for boys and girls ages 5-18 years old. Begun in 1994, it seeks to give at-risk kids a meaningful partnership with community-based organizations and offers an alternative to drugs, gangs, and crime. They provide all of the uniforms, equipment, and training necessary to run a league as well as tickets to select Giants games so the youth can experience a Major League Baseball game.

As well as the fundamentals of baseball, Junior Giants focuses on the four bases of character development: confidence, integrity, leadership, and teamwork, which are also highly valued qualities at Nelson. Those four qualities are integrated into the Junior Giants handbook, which is distributed to all of the kids and parents.

Nelson’s “MVP” donation adds two full teams to the Junior Giants’ program. Says Gary Nelson, “We couldn’t be more proud to be associated with such a fine organization. The heart and spirit that makes the Giants such a strong team is also seen in the way they give back to the community. The Nelson family is thrilled to share our happiness through this contribution.” For more information about this and other programs run by the Giants Community Fund, go to: http://www.mlb.com/sf/community/gcf/.
