Among them was 6 year old Jack Pinto -- who loved sports.
His parents, Dean and Tricia Pinto contacted the founder of the local non profit, "Kids in the Game" to make a donation in their son's honor.
"When we started looking for organizations, we found "Kids in the Game" to honor Jack's life and his love of sports."
Kids in the Game Founder Natalie Hummel says their organization was started three years ago to provide financial assistance to low income families. They were honored to hear from the Pintos.
"They were just dealing with the emptiness and they wanted to do something and when they were searching for organizations, and they came across Kids in the Game, they felt it was the perfect fit for them."
