Scholarship Assistance

Our mission is to serve. For over 5 years we have partnered with our East Longmeadow High School Athletic Hall of Fame to offer scholarships to children and families in need. This program allows those who need assistance to get their children on the field and active! Please contact us at for more information on this great program.
