Masterman Recess Fund

The Philadelphia School District has cut so much money from our budget that we don't even have enough money for necessities, let alone play equiptment.

    We need new basketballs, two new ping-pong tables, new ping-pong paddles, new ping-pong balls and a new fooseball table. Our ping-pong table is falling apart, and our fooseball table is missing players and handles.
    We have contacted companies directly for donations and would be grateful if any of you have contacts that you could either forward to us or share this site with them. 
    We are asking you to give anything you can to help our school. At Masterman, students work really hard.  There is a lot of stress and we need our 20 minutes of relaxation time during recess. In our current situation, there is nothing for us to do, especially in the cold months. 
    This equipment will benefit all 1,200 students whether they are in middle-school or high-school.

      The equipment we want to buy is not the cheapest available, instead we chose items we believe will last for a while and will stand up to daily use by a lot of kids. 
    Thank you for your generosity and remember that all work and no play isn't good for anyone.
