Last year, La Rue Inspire and the LEADERS BASKETBALL PROGRAM hosted a holiday event in collaboration with the PUMA. The evening featured a toy drive, a holiday dinner and giveaways to the young LEADERS who were present. Our aim was not only to give back but to create a sense of community while fostering generosity within the youth.
This year, due to the pandemic, we had to rethink our approach…
Given the social distancing regulations in place, we could not host our annual Toy Drive. Nonetheless, we still wanted to help in a way that would, not only bring a moment of joy to the youth, but also, relieve some stress from the parents who’ve had to endure multiple waves of uncertainty. So we decided to offer a gift that would touch on both of those feelings; 100 NEW PUMA WINTER JACKETS.
The jackets were distributed to the BOYS & GIRLS CLUB OF DAWSON, L'ORGANISME TENDRE LA MAIN, WESTHAVEN ELMHURST COMMUNITY RECREATION ASSOCIATION & DESTA BLACK YOUTH NETWORK.
Thank you to all our community partners who continuously work for the people no matter the obstacles we are faced with.
SPECIAL THANK YOU TO OUR PUMA FAMILY FOR THEIR CONTINUOUS SUPPORT OF OUR COMMUNITY PROJECTS.
Although we can not physically be there for each other, we always want to remind people that we are there to support them.
