Mariners second baseman Robinson Canó today presided over the ribbon cutting for the RC22 DREAM School in his hometown of San Pedro de Macoris, Dominican Republic.

The school was built by Canó and his RC22 Foundation. The Montessori school will serve 100 children, ages 3-8, and will offer holistic community and employment training programs for the people who live in San Pedro de Macoris.

The RC22 Foundation was created in 2010 to positively impact the lives of underserved children and communities through education and health care initiatives.

Now that the school is open, the focus has turned to providing supplies for students and administrators. Kits for Kidz has a link if you’d like to donate. For $20, you can purchase a kit with 30 essential items needed for an entire school year, along with a backpack. A donation of $1,000 will provide supplies for students and teachers in one classroom for the school year, and $2,500 will supply uniforms for all the students during the RC22 DREAM School’s inaugural year.
