THE STORY:

The date for the Fifth Annual Whitney Young Winter Coat Drive& Alumni Basketball game is set for Wednesday, November 21, 2018 from 5pm to 9pm. The Basketball game will tip at 6pm. Our mission is to help those less fortunate brace for another brutal Chicago Winter by urging our guest to bring *NEW or Slightly Used* winter coats to donate, while also meeting and reconnecting with friends and family over a competitive game of basketball featuring alums from the most prestigious high school basketball program's in Chicago. Your financial support is needed and greatly appreciated.

In 2016, The 4th Annual Whitney Young Winter Coat Drive and Alumni Basketball was a huge success. Not only were we able to raise hundreds of coats to donate to those in need but we were also able to raise enough money to purchase and dontate 31 brand new coats, scarves, hats and gloves to an entire first grade classroom at Howe Elementary on Chicago's West Side. For this years event we would like to take things a step further and purchase new winter coats for an entire elementary school grade in Chicago's with your help. We need everyone to come out and support as we strive to bring positive energy to our community and beyond. Through the coat drive, it is our goal to raise awareness and funds for our non-profit organization, The Atypical Sports & Learning Foundation, Inc. Our mission is to expose “at-risk” and inner-city youth to “Atypical” sports as a means to increase awareness, leading to increased participation, which ultimately increases their chances of graduating high school and attending college. For more information on the coat drive please visit www.wycoatdrive.info Thanks so much for your support. I look forward to seeing you at this years event. Please share and spread the word. Kind Regards, Jelani Floyd
