Basketball Manitoba is asking all participants of this weekend's Club Basketball Championships to bring a used basketball or a pair of basketball shoes to our donation bins this weekend at the Canada Games Sport for Life Centre, University of Winnipeg Duckworth Centre, University of Manitoba Investors Group Athletic Centre or Dakota Community Centre Fieldhouse. Our collection bins are set up near the entrance to each gym area and are there to collect and redistribute used basketball equipment to those in need. Since launching the bins in January 2013, we have collected over 3500 items through the 10 donation bins located in Manitoba.
In the spirit of the 'Give Away Weekend' and spring cleaning, please look in your basement for a pair of basketball shoes that may be too small or are going unused or an extra basketball and bring it with you to your games this weekend. Your anticipated donation is greatly appreciated and will be put in the hands or on the feet of a child in Manitoba who wants to play basketball but doesn't have access to the basic equipment needs. Items can be dropped off at any of the noted locations below.
