The Yankees have announced that the fifth annual HOPE Week will take place from July 8-12th this summer. “Each day over the five-day stretch, the Yankees will reach out to an individual, family or organization worthy of recognition and support, surprising honorees with a day celebrating their accomplishments,” said the release. “Outreach will often take place away from Yankee Stadium, allowing the Yankees to personally connect with individuals in settings that highlight their greatest successes.”
The various minor league affiliates held their own versions of HOPE Week last season, which is something that will continue this season. Good on the Yankees, HOPE Week is always fantastic and well done.
