Middle Valley Youth Association has received a $20,000 grant awarded by The Home Depot Foundation. This funding, along with a crew of up to 70 volunteers on Friday, will elevate the sports facilities for the benefit of young athletes and families in the community. 

"Middle Valley Youth Association is known for offering a wide range of sports programs, including baseball, softball, soccer, cheerleading, tackle football, flag football and soon-to-be-added lacrosse," officials said. "Our mission is to provide a safe and supportive environment for youth development."

The Home Depot Foundation's grant will fund essential upgrades:
• Dugout Revamp: baseball and softball dugouts will undergo complete renovations to ensure safety and comfort for athletes.
• New Picnic Tables: picnic tables will be added to create a welcoming space for families and spectators.
• Enhanced Landscaping: enhancement of the overall landscape to improve aesthetics and enjoyment for all.

"We would like to express our profound appreciation for The Home Depot Foundation, Food City, Coca-Cola and every volunteer who will contribute to this transformative project," officials said.
"Your commitment to the well-being of our community's youth is invaluable, and we are excited to see the positive impact these enhancements will have on our young athletes and their families. This partnership exemplifies our community's spirit, demonstrating a commitment to our young athletes. We are excited to witness the positive impact of these upgrades."
