Honor Jack by Getting Underprivileged Kids in the Game
Jack was a sweet, loving and active six-year old boy who enjoyed playing all kinds of sports, but most of all loved having fun and being with other kids. Jack Pinto lost his life in the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy on December 14, 2012. His parents, Dean and Tricia Pinto, are committed to honoring Jack’s short life by helping make a difference in the lives of other children across the country.
“The KIDS in the GAME team is doing incredible work and it felt natural for us to partner with them to honor Jack’s memory and his love of play through their organization. It is our hope that others will consider giving in Jack’s honor to give underprivileged kids across the country the opportunity to enjoy team sports like he did.”
–Tricia and Dean Pinto
The Pinto family has made a donation to KITG from the Jack A. Pinto Charitable Gift Fund, which will enable more than 400 children around the country to enjoy the same opportunity to play sports that Jack had. Please join his family and us in honoring Jack by giving youth in America a chance to live an active, healthy, happy life through sports and play.
