Tampa Bay Rays fill big need for Hernando Co. Boys and Girls Club

It's been a rough road for the Boys and Girls Club of Hernando County, but the Tampa Bay Rays have helped out in a big way.

Three of the club's buses, which are used to transport children to activities, have been in desperate need of repair. They've had a hard time getting the funds to fix them.

The Tampa Bay Rays heard that one of the buses broke down on the way to a game so the team stepped up to help.

With mascot, Raymond in tow, they presented the Boys and Girls Club with a check for $5,600.

"We have been working with the Rays for years. They've always given us tickets and supported our organization. Today was just a huge surprise for them to come out and give us this kind of funding to help us fix our buses," said Boys and Girls Club CEO, Joshua Kelly.
