San Francisco Giant and Foothill High graduate Brandon Crawford teamed up with Wells Fargo and KNBR last week to present $75,000 in grants to Bay Area schools at AT&T Park.
It is part of the Step Up to the Plate for Education grant program funded by Wells Fargo. Twenty Bay Area schools received money, including Vintage Hills Elementary School in Pleasanton and Dublin High School.
Vintage Hills Elementary received $5,000 is baseball equipment and general support and Dublin High received $2,000 for musical instruments repair for the marching band.
“I am privileged to play for the San Francisco Giants and win the World Series with my hometown team,” Crawford said. “I am excited to be a part of Wells Fargo’s Step Up to the Plate for Education program. As a Bay Area native, it is an honor to be part of a program that gives back to the Bay Area schools. Looking back, it all started with education and the opportunities afforded to me in academics and athletics. Through the program’s efforts, I am pleased to know that more Bay Area kids will have the opportunity to expand their academic and athletic horizons.”
