Teacher Vanecek from Taylor TX is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Footballs, Footballs, Footballs!

My students need these footballs to be successful. These footballs will allow us to practice better throughout the season with official balls.

My Students

My student-athletes are special because they overcome many obstacles in their lives. Many are underprivileged student-athletes from just east of Austin and are largely served by free and reduced-price lunch. They are some of the most gifted and talented students I have ever been around. Despite the odds stacked against them, they deserve the experience to practice and play with quality equipment in their effort to hone their skills and love for the game. Each and every day counts in impacting the future of these students!

My Project

What a culture improvement this will be! Our kids need new balls to practice with throughout the summer and the upcoming season in order to gain necessary repetition. Not only will it give us a chance to improve, but it will be a huge boost in the arm for our kids. Please help in making this happen for our students. Many of them have rough lives and football is their escape. New equipment and gear goes such a long way when it comes to seeing these kids succeed. Our main goal is to see them become great husbands and fathers. Our platform to accomplish this is through football.
