Please Help Us Replace Our Basketball Backboard

Help me give my students a tempered glass backboard and a net. Our tempered glass backboard was accidentally broken and shattered. Now our athletes can't use this basketball hoop.

My Students

The students from our school are kind to each other and like to help their community as well. We are a public, K-8 school with over twelve hundred students located in Philadelphia. We are a Title I school.

The athletes at our school love to play basketball.

We have a boys and a girls team. They play against other middle school teams. They love to practice their basketball skills. This hoop will give them the opportunity to practice their skills and become better athletes.

My Project

The athletes at our school love to play basketball. Both the girls and boys at our school compete on middle school basketball teams. They compete against other schools in the sport of basketball. Unfortunately, in September our tempered glass backboard was accidentally broken. The athletes at our school love to play basketball and they deserve to have their hoop fixed. They miss playing basketball on this hoop. We appreciate all of your donations. Hopefully, we can get a new backboard soon and have it installed. Then our athletes will be able to play their favorite sport again. They miss playing basketball and would love to be able to play this sport again soon!
