It was a banner summer for the Players Trust programs that engage kids in their communities when school is out.

Buses for Baseball brought underserved kids to the ballpark, through City Clinics players helped inner-city kids learn the game, Action Teams partnered with players to serve their communities and Operation Backpack ensured that some of the neediest children will have sufficient school supplies when they return to the classroom.

Nationals players Aaron Barrett, Craig Stammen and Michael Taylor joined Action Team high school volunteers this week to give a fresh coat of paint to a playground that serves an apartment complex for low-income families.

More than 80 kids live at the Eastern Avenue Apartments, an 88-unit complex for low-income families that is operated by Volunteers of America’s Chesapeake affiliate. While the paint was drying, the players and Action Team Captains joined the kids in games of wiffle ball, basketball and jump rope.
