Monroe Twp. Little League team gets $12,000 in donations

Friday, August 02, 2013

A little league team in New Jersey now has the funds to head to their regional tournament.

Action News reported on the 9 and 10-year-old team from Monroe Township last week.

For the first time in league history, they won the state championship. However they didn't have the money to go to the next round in Rhode Island this weekend.

Since the story aired on the news, the team's manager says donations started pouring in.

The team was able to raise about $12,000 in a week.
