Slam Dunk Outreach: Transformation Montgomery to Help with Summer Basketball Tournaments
Peggy Spaeth, coordinator of Frazer’s Transformation Montgomery (TM) local mission initiative, announced this week that TM has partnered with five other nonprofits and two Parks & Recreation community centers in North Montgomery to host Friday Night Basketball this summer. Volunteers are needed to support the staff person in general oversight of the event, running the clock, selling concessions and building caring relationships with the community.
“By providing a positive, popular outlet for teens and young adults, we will create opportunities for witness, mentoring and learning for our church,” said Peggy. “The results will be lowered delinquency and greater community pride in North Montgomery, and ultimately more success for our community transformation efforts to the glory of God.”
The City of Montgomery will provide a Parks & Recreation staff person at each site. TM has pledged to provide volunteers as part of the North Precinct Service Providers Alliance .
Games will be held Fridays, June 6 – August 8, from 5 – 9 pm at the Chisholm Community Center (545 E. Vandiver Blvd.), the Nehemiah Project’s Gym (213 Broadway St.), and the Sheridan Heights Community Center (3501 Faro St.). Volunteers can choose a site to participate at, or be assigned to one.
Individuals or small groups can volunteer by contacting Peggy at 334-224-1048 or Peggy@PeggySpaeth.com. For additional information download the Friday Night Basketball Volunteer Flyer.
