Baltimore based youth basketball organization, Team BBC will be coordinating its second annual coat drive this winter in association with Building Blocks for Our Children Inc. and partnership with Spartan Sports & Wellness. Their goal is to collect 300 new or gently used coats, along with socks, blankets, hats, and gloves to distribute to the homeless in their effort to help keep the streets of Baltimore warm this winter.
Last years event was a huge success with over 300 coats and other items being donated. The young men of Team BBC had the opportunity to make a difference in the community by giving out the items to hundreds of homeless people who were in need for a warmer winter.
Team BBC is dedicated to enriching the lives of young men on and off the court. “It’s important that we teach our kids the importance of giving back to the community. We empower them to be better leaders on the court, in school, and in their community.” says, Director Jide Sodipo.
