Mariano Rivera SpeakerNew York Yankees legend Mariano Rivera was known for two things during his 19 year major league career, being a great teammate who loved to help people out and of course, saves. Though he retired last year, he has continued both of those things in retirement through his foundation, The Mariano Rivera Foundation. Recently he poured $3 million into a 107-year-old church in New Rochelle, New York that desperately needed renovation to continue spreading the love of God to a community needing hope.

“It has been a privilege to fulfill a dream that God put in our hearts,” Rivera told the congregation at Refugio de Esperanza, or Refuge of Hope, the Pentacostal Christian congregation led by his wife, Clara. When asked if the rescue of the church should be added to his major league record 652 saves, Rivera said, “You could say that. This was a big one.”

During Rivera’s career he helped lead the Yankees to five World Series Championships, earning 13 All-Star selections and three Delivery Man of the Year awards along the way. In 2013 he was awarded the Commissioner’s Historic Achievement Award and was honored by having his #42 Yankees jersey retired. A devout Christian, Rivera has been committed to philanthropic work throughout his career and strives to continue his work in retirement.
