Hoops Of Salisbury

My name is Branden, a student at Livingstone College located in Salisbury NC, I originally hail from NYC, where many of my days were spent playing and loving the game of basketball. As an Athlete, I was fortunate to live in a City that had a sundry of programs for me and my peers to perfect our game. Growing up, basketball was very instrumental in my life, affording me the opportunity to be part of several traveling teams and most of all giving me the aspiration to attend college. 

 My goal is to assist younger children who love basketball with the fundamental skills of the game. Learning the fundamentals of the game can help prepare young children for life. Team sports such as  basket ball fosters team work, critical thinking skills, friendship, resiliency and most of all it provides a forum to have good and safe fun. 

I believe that sports and especially basket ball can save lives, that is why I worked over the summer to save money in order to have a free clinic come to fruition. Unfortunately as a college student with a big heart, I have some financial limitations. In order to make  this day possible, the team of volunteers and I will need your financial assistance. All money raised will go to purchasing a few more basket balls, a few gift cards to giveaway and last but not least, we want to feed and hydrate all participants.  Thank you in advance for your support, every dollar donated is greatly appreciated.
