Softball Equipment for an Up and Coming Team

Help me give my students the necessary equipment for a very successful season.

My Students

As a Title I school with 70% of our population receiving free or reduced lunch, our students are faced with an immense amount of challenges. Being a minority. Being labeled as uneducated when English is their second language. Being in a foster home. Being a refugee. Always being the new student because moving to another location is just a part of the routine. Not having the resources that are provided at higher funded schools.

Our students deserve to be able to play on a team where they learn, are supported, and grow.

Our students may be beginners, but their heart shows that they can overcome even the greatest of obstacles.

They are dedicated. They are passionate. They support those around them.

With softball, they are able to come together to help each other out both on and off the field. Even though we are currently struggling to find the means to provide them with the necessary equipment, our students come to practice with a smile on their faces as they are grateful for what they have.

My Project

Our students come from various different backgrounds. They often refrain from playing sports because they cannot afford the equipment to play.

With your help, our students will have the necessary training and safety equipment to compete on many different levels.

These resources will help them become a part of a team and will allow them to shape their own personal characters in a positive way. It will be something that they look forward to doing and will make them into overall better citizens in society. This will also make them appreciate all the help they have been given to then return it back to the community.
