Volleyballs...Help Our Team!!!

My students need 3 volleyballs for our school team and physical education class.

My Students

The game of volleyball changed my life forever and I hope with your generous donation of 3 volleyballs we can change the lives of many more students.

I teach high school (9th-12th) physical education in a high needs, inner city, charter school in Michigan.

Politicians are cutting our resources, especially in Michigan, and we are asking you to help replenish them. Volleyball is a popular sport at my school and we don't even have a good volleyball to practice with, let alone play a game. Students walk around our school dreaming of being volleyball stars and I want to give them an opportunity to fulfill their dreams.

My Project

I am asking for 3 girls volleyballs. I want my students to see the wonderful benefits that come from the game of volleyball. These 3 volleyballs can help to keep kids off the streets, value the importance of physical activity, and improve their social skills.

You will help to ensure that all 120 of my students this year and for the future have the opportunity to play a game that many people love and enjoy.

Thank you in advance for your donations.
