All Peoples is proud to announce and grateful for the generous support of The National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) Foundation in partnership with the LA84 Foundation who have awarded All Peoples with a $25,000 grant to refurbish our community center basketball court. All Peoples’ South Central Sports League and collaborative partner PF Bresee Foundation received the 2nd $25,000 grant awarded by the foundations.
“We are excited to share the news with the PF Bresee Foundation and the All Peoples Community Center,” said Sherrie Deans, Executive Director of the NBPA Foundation. “Both of these organizations play integral roles in their respective neighborhoods, offering safe spaces for children to play and engage in their communities. We look forward to working with both groups and kicking off these refurbishment projects in the coming months.”
All Peoples Youth Staff also had the opportunity to attend LA84’s annual youth sports summit. The theme was “Play Equity: Elevating the Game for Our Kids” and focused on how youth sports, structured play and physical activity catalyze positive life outcomes for young people.
We would like to acknowledge and thank The National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) Foundation and the LA84 Foundation for their support and investment in our youth, family and community.
