will substantially increase opportunities and utilization," Roberts continues. "We are proud to be a part of a great team effort and look forward to supporting additional opportunities to expand our community resources." As a nonprofit, Community Investors is supported by local businesses and private donors. John Pastore, Senior Vice President of Integrated Financial Partners, was a founding donor, "My son and many of his friends in Wellesley have enjoyed Joe's Terriers baseball programs for years. Our firm has also collaborated with Joe in the financial services field and know he is capable of great things. We saw this as a unique oppor- tunity to fund a proven leader to launch an impactful program for our community. We are proud to support Community Investors." Roberts sees yet another benefit of Com - munity Investors. "Over the years we've been fortunate to see graduates of our other pro- grams go on to do great things including becoming a Major League Baseball player, a college varsity football coach, and two NFL assistant coaches. But the graduate we are most proud of founded his own nonprofit to support Wellesley students in need, and is now on the Community Investors' Board helping us get started," recalls Roberts. "So while the kids may view our program simply as a great way to have fun, we are working to teach them the importance and value of community and hope they will be inspired to support their town someday. Every city and town could ben- efit from a program like this. And we believe we can create a blueprint that can be repli- cated for many other communities." 154 W e l l e s l e y W e s t o n M a g a z i n e | f a l l 2 0 1 5 fitness & health "the importance and value of community" D A R R E N B O V I E
