Many recreational sport leagues are just about playing the game, but one Taylorville league is looking to give back to the community. The Taylorville Men’s Softball League is collecting food and monetary donations for the Taylorville Food Pantry throughout the summer. The group has already raised $1,400, and they will continue to collect donations through July 23rd.
Men’s Softball League Vice President Justin Hall says this isn’t the first time the group has raised money for charity.
Hall says you don’t have to play to help the cause. He says spectators can bring donations to their games on Sundays, along with enjoying some good old-fashioned softball.
If you have any questions, Hall says you can contact the group through their Facebook page, Taylorville Men’s Softball, or they play every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Don Braggs Sport Complex on West Vandeveer in Taylorville.
