Taking it to the hoop

"If you accept the expectations of others, especially negative ones, then you will never change the outcome." —Michael Jordan

This winter, Elmcrest’s residential children will get to work with an experienced youth basketball trainer for 10 weeks. They’ll learn court skills such as dribbling, passing and shooting. They'll also learn life skills such as teamwork and how to set and achieve goals. They’ll build trust in themselves and their teammates. With confidence on the court, there’s no telling what they can achieve off of it.

To cover the costs of this new program, we worked together to surpass our $6,000 fundraising goal in just one day. It was a team effort. Whether you made a financial gift or you shared our Giving Tuesday messages, you were an important part of this win. We couldn’t have done it without you. 

Basketball has the power to changes lives. Thanks for giving every child a shot at a bright future.
