Hurricane Relief:Sports Team
My students need baseball belts and bases for the baseball team to compete.
The 300 student-athletes of our school are very hardworking individuals who are very competitive both on the field and track and in the classroom. These students are very committed and determined. I teach in a low-income area. After being hit hard by Hurricane Irma, many families were at a loss. This help with new equipment for our school will bring the light back in these young children's eyes, and things will get back to normal sooner than later.
Participating in sports relieves the students' stress level and keeps them more focused!
I am writing this project for baseball belts and bases to keep them baseball ready. Our community was hit hard by the hurricane this year both financially and emotionally. Our school had damaged from the storm due to the high winds and flooding, and it messed up our track and field as well as some flooding in the equipment sheds that equipment was in. Administration is working very hard to get us all up to speed again but disasters like this just take time to overcome.
Many families in the community were affected by the hurricane and it has put a lot of stress on with the excessive amount of cost for the clean up.
Playing sports helps them cope with the stress in their lives. It keeps them more focused on the finer things in life and keeps the stress and pain caused by the hurricane off their mind for the time being. You would be doing a huge deed by helping our sports program here and getting these kids to the next level. We are so hopeful with your help and the help of Dick's Sporting Goods that our project will be fully funded, and the stress level of these kids and the communities will go down - showing them that there is hope to getting things back to normal and that people do care about others by helping communities in need. Please help, the kids truly deserve it.
