Brampton high school to receive funding from Toronto Blue Jays' charity foundation
Some Brampton high school students are in luck — particularly those who enjoy some good old-fashioned baseball.
The Jays Care Foundation, charitable arm for the Toronto Blue Jays, announced that it will be investing $1.1 million this year into communities across the country through its Field of Dreams program.
Field Of Dreams is Jays Care’s granting program that provides funding to design, refurbish, and build safe spaces for children and youth to play baseball and develop life skills.
The 2020 Field of Dreams recipients include four places in Ontario: Brampton, Mississauga, Ottawa and Kemptville.
The city announced today that the Brampton school that will receive funding is Judith Nyman Secondary School, located at the intersection of Bramalea and Williams Parkway.

“Through Field Of Dreams, we’re investing $1.1 million for our Blue Jays community to reconnect once it’s safe to do so,” said the Jays Care Foundation, referencing the current COVID-19 pandemic that has made sports gatherings more difficult.
Jays Care says it has committed over $8 million to 66 infrastructure projects across Canada in the last five years.
More details regarding this funding and other Field Of Dreams 2020 recipients are expected to come at a later date.
