Mrs. P. from Lantana FL is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Basketball Items are Needed

My students need a ball cart for basketballs, and a few more balls would be very very helpful! We are blessed for what we have receive this far!

My Students

We were blessed to have been given 10 basketballs, which now means we are in need of a new ball cart. We currently have one, but it is VERY old, rusty, and does not even close correctly. This program was not in good shape when I took over as head coach, my goal is to create a new and exciting program!

I coach the Girls Varsity Basketball Team.

These girls are a joy! They have a ton of potential! Our school is a low income school (Title 1) and when it comes to athletics we are not given any school funds to put towards our program which puts pressure on the coach and athletes to raise money. In order to get every item we need to run a program well; it costs a lot. My hope is to minimize the money I require the girls to raise and be able to put money that we raise together towards memorable experiences. This means that some of the equipment and items we need are not feasible when it comes to our budget.

My Project

The items I am in need of are small details that will help our program get to where I envision it. Our biggest need is a ball cart. Most of these items will help practice to run smoother and help us be able to transport items (balls and gear) easier to away games next year.

I want this basketball team to change the girls lives.

I want them to become better young women and human beings. My hope is that by being part of a well run program and being around as it transforms will help them think of others before themselves. I love these girls and love my job. I am passionate about it, but I also cannot do it alone.
