Playing ball in Woodhaven 1

The Woodhaven Cultural & Historical Society recently gave a donation of $400 to WORKS Little League, which will be used for the group’s Challenger Division.

The program is designed specifically for children with special needs so they can “take the field and play ball,” Project Woodhaven said in a Wednesday email.

Money for the league was raised through pledges for the society’s work on restoring the historic Wyckoff-Snediker Family Cemetery in Woodhaven behind St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church at 85-45 96 St.

According to Project Woodhaven, the society has been working with the neighborhood’s historic Neir’s Tavern, located at 87-48 78 St., to raise money for the league in honor of Autism Awareness Month.

Neir’s Tavern will present a separate donation to the league at the end of the month.
