Putt for Presents was created in 2011 with the goal of helping to brighten the lives of underprivileged youth.
Through donations, the Putt for Presents team strives to enhance the lives of underprivileged youth in local homeless shelters.
Through the three year's tournament efforts, the Putt for Presents team has raised over $20,000. With the donations received, the team is sponsoring the Transitions homeless shelter in Devens, MA. Every month the Putt for Presents team visits the shelter and throws a birthday party for the children that have birthdays in that month. In addition, the team purchases gifts for the birthday children and brings cake, activities, and goodie bags for all children in the shelter that attend the party.
More important than the gifts, the children at the shelter are building strong relationships with the Putt for Presents team. The team, acting as role models for the children, strives to enhance the lives of these children beyond gifts on their birthdays. With additional proceeds from the tournaments, the team seeks alternative avenues to provide the children with the opportunities to lead healthy, productive lives.
Putt for Presents is a registered 501c3 tax-exempt organization.
