Giants Community Fund helps youth with 'Stretch Drive'

Junior Giants community programs

In 2009, the Giants and Willie McCovey introduced the Junior Giants Stretch Drive. Inspired by Hall of Famer Willie McCovey, the Junior Giants Stretch Drive is a fundraising campaign dedicated to raising money and awareness for the Giants Community Fund's flagship program Junior Giants.

We're pleased to report that the 2011 Stretch Drive campaign raised over $265,000 to maintain Junior Giants -- a free, non-competitive, co-ed baseball program for 17,000 children in over 85 underserved communities.
