Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation
Since 2006, Lewis Contractors has partnered with The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation in building youth development parks throughout Maryland and Washington D.C. These multipurpose, synthetic turf, low-maintenance facilities are designed to provide a cohesive recreational and educational experience for children, particularly in at-risk communities. Following the completion of each field project, the parks are gifted to a youth-serving partner so local children have access, ownership, and pride for their park. The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation continues to have a presence at each field it partners in building to help build character and teach critical life lessons to at-risk young people living in America’s most distressed communities through sports-themed programs.
