On Sept. 15, 2017, New York Yankees All-Star pitcher CC Sabathia and his wife Amber Sabathia hosted their annual youth backpack program at PS 47 (John Randolph Elementary School) in the Bronx, New York.
Through their PitCCh InFoundation, the Sabathias donated 2,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to all students in collaboration with the Kids In Need Foundation and State Bags. The Sabathias also provided backpacks to the youth at Legal Aid Society’s Juvenile Justice Program and the New York City Department of Homeless Services’ Pre-K/3-K Readiness Program.
This was the eighth year of the PitCCh In Foundation signature program. To date, the organization has donated over 36,000 backpacks with school supplies through the New York Tri-State and Vallejo, Calif., CC’s hometown.
