sportquest bp balls!

Hello,

I just wanted to reach out and say a huge THANK YOU for granting us the funds to purchase this equipment for our youth sports programs in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

I work in an under served neighborhood where new sports equipment is hard to come by. Oftentimes our volunteer coaches (including me!) spend our own money to make sure the teams have game balls and that we have a few practice balls.

This equipment will provide practice and game balls as well as scrimmage jerseys for 4 soccer teams (ages 5-13), two football teams (ages 9-13), and two basketball teams (ages 10-14). In total, over 100 kids will be served through this donation. 

Hope you have a blessed holiday season. 

I know a few kids who will be excited to hit the court and the pitch come January!

Thanks!

Ball Project is thankful for our partners working to build their community & help children play!

 

Here is a short update from one of our USA based partners:

I currently live and work in an inner city neighborhood in Tampa, Florida. Every day kids from the neighborhood come out to a field that was purchased by a partner to engage in sports and recreational activities.

This is a great opportunity for our staff and volunteers to connect with kids, teach sports skills, mentor, and teach life skills. These kids don’t have much so it has been great to see their excitement over the new equipment provided by the Ball Project.

Everyday is a great day to give, but apparently today is an extra special day to give (I guess because we spent the weekend being Thankful)…….
