(CHICAGO ) — The Chicago White Sox are celebrating their seventh annual Sox Serve Week, a fundraising and community outreach campaign that has raised more than $1 million for Chicago White Sox Charities since its inception.

But giving back to the community is not reserved for just one week for the White Sox. Earlier this summer Jose Abreu visited Easter Seals Metropolitan Chicago (ESMC) Therapeutic School and Center for Autism Research to launch a new community program called “Abreu’s Amigos.”

Abreu donated $10,000 to ESMC before hosting a baseball clinic on White Sox Field at the school, which the team helped build in 2008. White Sox teammates Emilio Bonifacio, Melky Cabrera and Alexei Ramirez joined Abreu to work with the students with special needs.

CLTV Sports Feed co-host Josh Frydman has more on Abreu’s work at Easter Seals.
