THE STORY:

Hello Friends, Family & Supporters, My name is Angelo Martinez and for the past 33 years I have given my time, energy and focus to helping children and parents in the East Harlem community by providing them with activities and opportunities that their kids that they may not of had anywhere else.

East Harlem suffers from many social issues such as the highest unemployment rates in NYC, teenaged pregnancy, AIDS, drug abuse, homelessness and an asthma rate 5 times the national average. East Harlem has the second highest concentration of public housing in the Unites States and has the highest violent crime rate in Manhattan.

This is the neighborhood that our children are living and growing up in and it's far past due time for change. For the past three decades I've given my time, energy and focus to help push these kids towards positive influences and away from the negativity that surrounds them each day.

The goal of Just Us Sports isn't only to teach kids how to play sports but most importantly it instills children with the confidence and self respect that will lead them to become productive citizen's in our society's future.

I've done everything I can and will continue to fight for change within our community and for our children but now I need your help! Volunteers, parental involvement and financial support / donations are needed to help feed the kids, provide uniforms, sporting equipment and to ensure that the children of Just Us Sports have all the resources needed. I thank you for your time and hope you can find it in your heart to help support the dreams, hopes and futures of the children of East Harlem.
