It was a close competition with all teams providing numerous items requested. Some teams also donated items that were not listed in their individual requirements!!

 

Of course the Lowcountry Community is the big winner here. 

 

OUR BALLERS donated 350 pounds of food to the Lowcountry Food Bank which equates to providing 269 meals to families in need in the Lowcountry!!! 

In addition, 313 magazines were given to Roper and Trident Hospitals!!!

Finally, a huge thank you must go out to

Lowcountry Ballers Community Service - #1 2011
 

Our first community service event for this season will take place from
9:00am - 3:00pm on Saturday, April 2 
at Goose Creek High School


We will be participating in a Food Drive and magazine collection.  Items from the food drive will be donated to the Lowcountry Food Bank, magazines will be given to local hospitals. Each team will be asked to donate items from the list provided below.  There will be a prize for the team that brings in the most items in the food and magazine sections, i.e. there will be a team food drive winner and a team magazine winner.

 

Please find listed below the items that we are asking your team to bring.  While this is a team competition, at the end of the day, the real winners will be members of the Lowcountry community so we encourage all to bring any items that you may have at home. 
Remember your genorous acts are examples of how the
LOWCOUNTRY BALLERS WIN!!!

 

The food drive will take place only during the time period and day identified. Containers will be available to pack the items on that Saturday.  The drop off site has been selected for ballers convenience as there will be several practices taking place throughout that day.  Our second service project is being confirmed and should take place in May.  More details to come!!

 

Please do not hesitate to send me an email at djenkins@lowcountryballers.org if you have any questions.

 

Thank you in advance for helping the Lowcountry community!

LOWCOUNTRY BALLERS
"Lifting As We Climb"
 
A huge thank you to all of the Ballers and family members that participated in the Baller’s first community service activity.   We had more then 35 participants at the First Festival. We know that Charleston County benefited from the water that the Ballers kept coming their way throughout the humid afternoon and the Charleston community as a whole will certainly benefit from the recycling assistance that other Ballers assisted with.   The Kid Zone was the most active place around and the Ballers and family members that helped the children play tennis and other activities were wonderful!  

A special thanks to the parents that participated, Ms. Nelson, Ms. Haney, Ms. Hooks, Ms. Yates, Ms. Brice, and Ms. Frasier, yes very pregnant, all willing to bear the heat to support the girls.   This is the first of what we hope will be a tradition with the Ballers, as it goes along way towards building character in the young girls that participate in the program annually.

Best of luck in school and look forward to seeing all of you in the spring!!!
