My Students

Our boys and girls, ages 12-15, are determined and hard-working students from a rural area. Being out in the country they have limited opportunities for physical education and sports outside of school. They want to be in school after being at home for a long period, isolated from friends. School budgets are spread thin with the devastation of the coronavirus. Our middle school sports and physical education classes are the first ones to receive budget cuts. We have to find new ways to provide needed basic supplies for our players and students.

My Project

This project will make a huge impact on our athletic facilities for basketball and volleyball. Your players currently do not have either of these items for games. They are hard-working boys and girls but their gym does not provide them a place to show their skills with adequate facilities.

Our boys and girls basketball and volleyball teams need sideline chairs and a scorers table for their home games.

We currently do not have these items in our gym. We borrow chairs from classrooms and an old plastic table from another classroom. We need to improve this for our players. Give them something to be proud of when they play. This is a large project that will make a huge impact for many years o come in their lives.
