Copyright © Art Wooden Play Ball! Foundation
In 2016 we launched our Cops & Kids Play Ball! Partnership with the
Redding Police Department & Shasta County Sheriff's office. In 2 days our local law enforcement put 70 bags of baseball/softball equipment directly into the hands of local children - who otherwise would not have had the opportunity to PLAY BALL! In 2017 RPD, helped us deliver 101 bags of equipment to kids in need in our community!
What an incredible testament to our local law enforcement, who know our community so well! We are honored to partner with them!
The Cops & Kids Play Ball! Partnership helps local law enforcement be seen in a positive light with local children. To invest in our local kids and give them encouragement, know people care about them & encourage them to participate in sports - is a work of ART. He would've loved this.
According to kidsdata.org there are over 12,000 children living below the poverty level in Shasta County. Our goal is help give them an opportunity to Play Ball! There are so many life skills & benefits to children participating in sports; teamwork, self-esteem, confidence and so much more! Every child deserves an opportunity to Play Ball!
