Basketball Gear for Kids

We are looking for community help in raising funds for uniforms and possibly shoes for a North Portland middle school basketball team.  They have had to wear black t-shirts with tape on the back for numbers.  They also have to supply their own shorts, and if they don't own shorts without pockets then they have to wear them inside out.  This is an underserved community that doesn't have the same support and resources that affluent families and communites enjoy.  These students are very bright and aware of their circumstances.  All they want is to be able to feel the pride of properly representing themselves and their community.  This experience for them has been embarrassing, and there is no reason that they should not be given the same opportunity to step on the court with pride as any other community.  We have one week until their next game and it would be nice to surprise them with fresh gear and show them that they matter.  Please donate anything that you can and or share this with others.  Thank you!!
