The students at my school have so little and I want to give them so much more. All of the students here come from homes below the poverty line, and I want them to have the chance to experience something that can influence their lives.
These students also do not have the luxury or privilege of having a gym membership to help keep themselves in shape.
Sadly, our school also does not have the weights or equipment to satisfy this need. Our school can really use the equipment to help beat the obesity epidemic while increasing health and social and emotional skills of our school community. I want them to be exposed to as much as possible so that they don't fall behind in their future educational pursuits. They come from broken homes, are living with an aunt or grandparent instead of mom and dad, and many even come from homeless shelters or abused family shelters. They have a very bleak outlook on what life has to offer them and need to know they can make a difference in their lives with the power of an education.
These donations will allow our student-athletes to have the proper equipment and drinks needed to make sure they have an optimal performance during practice, games, and recovery. These drinks, bats, and chair will be used throughout the season so the students are also able to have something to drink during the course of a long school day or game.
Our team will greatly benefit from these resources as it will help them replenish lost nutrients throughout the course of a practice or game while playing baseball at an elite level.
The chair, bats, and drinks will help them to hydrate and conserve energy throughout the duration of the long season.
