The Pittsburgh Steelers announced a $20,000 donation Wednesday towards former quarterback Charlie Batch’s Best of the Batch Foundation.
The donation is the organization’s latest towards their Social Justice Fund, which aims to assist community efforts through player contributions matched by the franchise.
Their latest contribution included donations from quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and offensive tackle Zach Banner.
“Best of the Batch Foundation is in the midst of a 33,000 sq. ft. expansion into a state of the art educational Clubhouse,” Batch told Steelers.com. “This new facility will not only support academic success and achievement but will also educate participants on social justice initiatives to empower children and their families to make positive, active change in their households, community, and world.”
The Best of the Batch Foundation aims to unlock potential and improve opportunities in underserved communities. They work with over 3,800 children and families.
“I am proud that we can join with our Steelers’ players in making these contributions through our Social Justice Fund that contribute to so many charitable efforts in our community,” team president Art Rooney II told Steelers.com.
