My students need four dozen baseballs to play in an after school baseball program.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
In an inner-city school with not much funding for extra activities after school, my students are looking for more and creative ways to come up with ways to be active in school.
We are a small charter school in the inner city of Los Angeles.
The school has a mission to guide students to success in college, leadership, and life by organizing and maintaining a rigorous academic program, as well as making them well-rounded individuals who participate in community service and collaborative teams and clubs like baseball. A majority of the students are sons and daughters of immigrants or immigrants themselves.
The resources that you will provide will give the students an opportunity to play a sport that has defined our country: baseball. With these generous donations, our students will use them to play games with fellow classmates, and to have an activity that will occupy their time after school. With this new set of baseballs, the students will be able to play organized sports, build up their resumes, and learn the value of team work in baseball.
While there is no I in team, donors like you can make a reality for my students in participating in the extra activity that will make the student want to come to school, so they can participate in activities after school.
The more engaged they are in after-school activities shows that students will do better in school activities.
