A local non-profit received a $10,000 donation from the New York Yankees this week.

Think Kindness, a non-profit that inspires kindness movements in schools and communities around the world, got the donation on Wednesday.

The Yankees donated through their HOPE Week initiative that chooses a different charity to highlight for each of the five days the program runs.

The organizations or individuals they chose are centered around acts of goodwill, hope and encouragement.
