CPI Security and the Columbia Fireflies teamed up to enhance baseball and softball experiences for youth in Columbia, S.C.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 11 and 12, CPI Security and Columbia Fireflies employees helped refurbish the softball and t-ball fields at Greenview Park. Together, employees from the two organizations fixed bleachers, painted dugouts, and repaired field surfaces. The ball fields have been in disrepair for several years. City leaders hope to have youth leagues playing on the fields again once repairs are complete.
CPI Security is committed to giving back to the communities it serves, and emphasizes giveback efforts that provide opportunities for underserved youth.
“We want to make sure kids in Columbia have a safe and updated park to play ball in,” CEO and Founder of CPI Security Ken Gill said. “Sports play an important role in teaching life lessons to our youth, and we’re excited to have the Columbia Fireflies joining us in this investment.”
“This is a fantastic opportunity for our team to give back to our community,” Fireflies Team President Brad Shank said. “We want all kids in Columbia to be able to have access to a community field, so they can stay active and maintain a healthy lifestyle, as well as experience the benefits of being a part of a team. We can’t wait to see youth league games at Greenview Park again next Summer.”
CPI Security is proud to work alongside the Columbia Fireflies to giveback to children in the Columbia area.
