You Can Make a Difference!

Our program is made possible through the generosity of individuals, civic clubs, businesses and corporations both local and across the nation. Our athletes participate in our program at no cost; therefore, without volunteers and donations, the program would not exist.

We accept donations in the form of cash or checks; or items such as water, food, transportation, office supplies, and shoes/equipment for our athletes.

If you would like to make a donation, please either contact us or mail your donation to:

Be sure to include “Monroe County” on the memo line.  Your generous donations are tax deductible. Thank you for your continuous support.
