Homers for Kids is a summer-long, corporate solicitation effort that benefits Woonsocket's children and teens through support of the Club's many programs. The Pawtucket Red Sox is supporting Homers for Kids, which is in its 19th year. As long-time partners, the PawSox supply event support at McCoy Stadium and pre-event promotion. A ceremony celebrating Homers for Kids is held at McCoy Stadium every April before a PawSox game. Representatives of the Boys & Girls Club of Woonsocket throw out the first ball. In August, a wrap-up, appreciation event is held on at McCoy Stadium also, in recognition of those who contributed to Homers for Kids campaign over the summer.
