My Students

My students are 9th - 12th grade female basketball players. Most of them come from low income homes. These young ladies aspire to use basketball as a tool to further their education beyond high school, so our goal is to provide for them the best opportunity to do so. One of those opportunities include providing them with the necessary training equipment and supplies to be on an equal playing field with other female athletes so that they can compete at the highest level possible.

Due to budget cuts, we do not have the resources to purchase all of the necessary training equipment and supplies for our basketball program.

So, I'm asking for help to provide these items for these young ladies. Your help will be very much appreciated.

My Project

Due to budget cuts, there are just some materials that we cannot afford to purchase or replace for the team each year. Those materials include things like water bottles, basketballs, taping and bracing materials, score books and cones. These are staple items that are important for any basketball team. Receiving a donation to purchase the materials will allow these female basketball players to have the resources and supplies needed to train at a high level without having to worry about the financial cost of purchasing these materials on their own. We ask for your assistance in filling these needs for our basketball program.
