The D-backs Give Back League is a program designed for Arizona Diamondbacks employees to contribute toward the community. We are an independent co-worker coalition, acting beyond any scope of employment with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The Home Plate Project is a fundraiser for local non-profits. The idea of the program is to get members of the Arizona community to decorate home plates that will be provided to them. The plates will then be put on-line here for auction. Participants are encouraged to decorate their plate any way they like that shows their personality, their company’s personality, mission, what they do or just any fun idea they choose. They may paint the plate, attach crafts, apply a photo or again; any way they want to creatively use the space. There is one rule; be creative!!!
Season 3 of the Home Plate Project will benefit Soldier’s Best Friend. Soldier’s Best Friend is a local non-profit that helps veterans living with combat related PTSD or traumatic brain injury integrate back into society by pairing them with a service dog. Many of these dogs have been rescued from local shelters. Each veteran and dog team lives and trains together for 6-9 months, building a bond that impacts two lives at once. Project funds will be donated to help offset the costs of building a facility so they can increase training to accommodate more veteran teams and rescued dogs. Please help us continue Soldier’s Best Friend's great tradition and 75% success rate by clicking on the Bid on Plates link above and submit a bid for any plates you are interested in. Bidding will run through Tuesday, September 30th. We also encourage you to visit the Previous Seasons link to check out our stories and wonderful plate designs from Seasons 1 and 2 of the Home Plate Project. Thank you for your support!
