Miguel Cabrera and his wife Rosangel are partnering with the Detroit Tigers Foundation to donate $250,000 to organizations in Detroit that serve families and children.

Most of the money is going to the Detroit Public Schools Community District ($50,000), the Detroit Public Schools Foundation ($50,000), as well as the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan, the Detroit Police Athletic League and Brilliant Detroit ($140,000). The donations will support efforts to help families receive meals and childcare during the COVID-19 crisis, and to help students access online resources.

The remaining $10,000 will support a philanthropic collaboration organized by G1 Impact to hire Detroiters to manufacture 100,000 reusable, hospital-grade masks for children and families in Detroit.
