At the Ripken Foundation, we partner with the Naples Children & Educational Foundation (NCEF) to provide opportunities for at-risk youth in Collier County, FL to grow into successful adults. On NCEF Give Back Day, January 17, 2020, Ripken Foundation staff and NCEF’s trustee volunteers built a community garden, gifted sports equipment, and donated clothing to youth at Youth Haven, South-West Florida’s only emergency residential shelter for children. The NCEF supports effective, disciplined charitable programs that significantly improve the physical, emotional and educational lives of underprivileged and at-risk children in Collier County. We frequently partner with NCEF to serve the community of Collier County, most notably during our annual Naples Camp, and at our baseball/softball, and adaptive clinics at Baker Field – one of our 90 Youth Development Parks and 17 Adaptive Fields.
