PURE BASKETBALL TOY DRIVE

Christmas time is approaching fast and this year Pure Basketball is hosting its first Toy Drive to help families that are in need for the holidays because every child deserves to wake up Christmas morning to at least a little something. Pure Basketball is a youth basketball program from Albemarle N.C. where we currently have 3 teams that travel the state and play in tournaments against other basketball programs from all over the state and some tournaments from all over the country. Our kids in the program range from high school down to 5th grade and we hope to expand  in the future. We are blessed to have a great support system around the program and hope to grow even bigger over the next few years. So we are using our platform to help those kids out this year and give back to the community since it has been so great to us. We will be hosting a drop off event December 1st at B.R.S inc in Richfield  NC where we will be accepting toys to donate. You can bring in new unwrapped toys for all ages that day. We will also will be selling food the day of the drop off for any one who comes to join us. Also if anyone knows a family personally that may be experience hard times and needs a little help for Christmas please let us know and we will personally try to help that family out as well with toys from the toy drive. So let’s all get together and help out the less fortunate this holiday season and come together as a community and make some kids Christmas a unforgettable one!!!! so everyone come out and get in the Christmas spirit and listen to Christmas music and help out our community...If you have any questions or would like to donate but can’t make event we can arrange a pick up please call 704-984-0042 or 704-792-8263 for more information!
