The Recreation Center in collaboration with Hoops and Homework are running a summer drop in program at the Pelham Apartments in Precinct 17 ( Beaver St. and Waverly St. area.) There is no cost for this vital service.
We have about 50 kids participating every day.
The children get breakfast and lunch and participate in educational and recreational activities all day.

We could use volunteers( must meet screening requirements) to help out and we could use the following supplies
books for K thru 8th grade educational games
academic enrichment materials
balls - soccer and basketball
