CINCINNATI (Nov. 26, 2012) — Do you know of a park, ball field or neighborhood recreation area that is in need of a renovation? This summer, P&G and the Reds will makeover one special community in the surrounding Greater Cincinnati area.

Nominate your community today!

1. Interested communities should complete the application at reds.com/community by Jan. 15, 2013.

2. Communities must be located within the surrounding Greater Cincinnati area.

3. Projects must include a minimum of one baseball and/or softball field and should also include a significant community park or asset in need of renovation.

4. Please also provide photographs, site maps and/or additional narratives to highlight relevant information regarding the project needs.

The Reds Community Fund is also looking for additional projects focused on renovating ball fields in underserved neighborhoods where a new or renovated field would increase the number of youth participating in baseball and softball programs.

Since 2010, P&G and the Reds Community Fund have partnered for the annual P&G Community Day volunteer service projects featuring hundreds of P&G employees renovating baseball, softball fields and community parks.
