Take Me Out to the Ballgame: Avery Dennison Supports Inclusive Field and Playground

“Smiles were in abundance during the opening ceremony and the games that followed...it was wonderful to see children of all abilities enjoy a game of baseball.”

Avery Dennison employees helped make dreams come true on Saturday, July 28, 2018 when the Lake Health Miracle Park opened in Eastlake, Ohio. In addition to a playground, the newly built park features an inclusively designed baseball field that allows children with special needs the chance to participate in playing baseball.

In 2017, Avery Dennison's Cleveland Films Facility, Engineered Films Plant and Painesville Film Facility each contributed to the construction of the park through the Avery Dennison Foundation’s Granting Wishes program, which encourages employees to form relationships with nonprofit organizations in local communities and submit grant applications on their behalf. The Foundation granted $9,000 to the Deepwood Foundation to support the field’s construction. In addition to the Foundation’s grant, Avery Dennison employees from the three facilities hosted a 5K race fundraiser to complement the grant.

Avery Dennison employees from all three Ohio facilities came out to the Lake Health Miracle Park to cheer on the children on opening day. “Smiles were in abundance during the opening ceremony and the games that followed,” said Dale Smith, quality engineering manager, Engineered Films Plant. “It was wonderful to see children of all abilities enjoy a game of baseball.”
