CLEARWATER – The Philadelphia Phillies awarded a grant for $7,500 to AFIRE, Serving Persons with Developmental and Intellectual Abilities.

The money will be used to provide scholarships to adult day training classes and to enhance the AFIRE summer camp.

AFIRE was the only Pinellas County recipient during a dinner gala in the Diamond Club of the Citizens Bank Ball Park in Philadelphia recently. All other recipients were from the Philadelphia area.

Many principal Phillies participated in this charitable event, such as team president, David Montgomery, and a majority owner, Bill Giles. The Phillies gave out $350,000 in grants during the event.

The Clearwater Threshers nominated AFIRE for the grant. The Threshers donate their time to play baseball with the students of AFIRE’s LifeSkills classes, and it was the Threshers’ community relations manager, Amanda Koch, who decided to nominate AFIRE for the grant.

AFIRE is managed by volunteers and operates with donations and fundraisers. This grant will enable AFIRE to serve more people in the county and accomplish its mission of enhancing the lives of this population.
