JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Volunteers are planning to rebuild the electrical system at Arlington Little League after thieves took tens of thousands of dollars worth of equipment back in November, shutting down the park for hundreds of children.

The volunteers are from the Miller Electric Company and the IBEW Local Union 177, who plan to replace and repair the electrical service and distribution system.

After hearing that the children in that area no longer have a place to play baseball, volunteers from the company offered to help repair the park.

The repairs will take place Saturday, Jan. 15 at 8 a.m. at 6350 Fort Caroline Road.

All material used to repair the electrical system will be donated by Graybar Electrical Supply. 

Here's a link to a GoFundMe that you can use to donate to help cover costs of some stolen items.
