Kenton Little League Named Honda Little League Grant Program Recipient Grant will Assist Local Little League® Program with Concession Equipment Upgrade.
Kenton, Oh. December 21st, 2020 – Kenton Little League has officially been named the recipient of a $740 Grant as part of the Honda Little League Grant Program. With the support of the grant, Kenton Little League will update concession equipment that has been in service since the park was built.
Over the course of more than two decades, the Honda Little League Grant Program donated more than $1.7 million to underfunded leagues, including Kenton Little League, helping to improve playing fields, purchase new equipment, and rebuild local Little League programs devastated by hurricanes, tornadoes, and other natural disasters.
For more than 70 years, Little League International has partnered with major corporations, like American Honda, on a national level to help keep the costs for its local Little Leagues to a minimum and to provide unparalleled benefits and resources to those member leagues. Sponsors help local leagues operate smoothly, provide training resources for coaches, offset expenses for educational initiatives, offer grant programs for leagues in need, assist in supporting tournament costs, and provide opportunities and knowledge in fundraising, operations, nutrition, and safety. In addition to the support from Little League International and its official sponsors, local Little League programs around the world work together with local businesses to create their own sponsorships that assist with fundraising and other needs to help run the program each day. In short, sponsors help leagues offer the best programs possible, so players and volunteers can have a fun and rewarding Little League experience.
