Click here to download a flyer (two per page, share with a friend and save a tree!) or come by 370 HEDCO to pick one (or a few) up!  You need to take the flyer with you for us to get the funds!

Why, you ask, do we need funds?  Well...

For a service-learning project to be successful, to have lasting positive impact, the importance of a mutually beneficial relationship cannot be overstated. All parties to the work must have "buy-in" on the project. In the Courts for Kids model, this "buy-in" is literal as well as figurative. Hence, in addition to paying our own way to the site, we will also raise $5,000 toward the cost of building the court. The community also "buys in" by con-tributing financially as well as with volunteer labor.
