SnapSports of Utah recently partnered with local non-profit University Neighborhood Partners to build a community basketball court. University Neighborhood Partners “brings together University and west side resources in reciprocal learning, action and benefit”. They primarily work with underprivileged children and provide resources to help them succeed.
The SnapSports of Utah team installed a small half court in their existing parking lot for the kids to enjoy after school. It will provide a safe place for them to play and get some exercise while bonding with their peers.
Here is a testimonial from the University:
Having a basketball court was a consistent request of the youth at the UNP Hartland Youth Center for over 5 years. Unfortunately, we could not make it work with our budget. Then about three years ago, a group of university staff began to raise funds to help the youth get their dream of a basketball court..but we were still short! Thanks, to SnapSports of Utah, they were able to provide a discounted price that made the dream a reality. We are grateful to this support…and we promise to having kids playing on it every day, as our way of saying THANK YOU!
