Hoops For The Homeless This Sunday!

Hoops For The HomelessThe Maine Real Estate Network is both excited and honored to sponsor the Hoops For The Homeless event taking place this Sunday, June 8th at XLSportsworld in Saco.

When:   Sunday, June 8th at 2:00pm,  1:00pm for teams and participants

Where:  400 North Street, Saco ME  XLSportsworld

"Hoops For the Homeless" is a combined endeavor between Project Blessing and the Maine Hoops Basketball Club.  The event is being held to raise awareness of the issues the Homeless face as they move into housing and raise funds and gather items to assist those individuals as they make this transition.   This is the mission of Project Blessing.

See the great video from WGME Channel 13

This great organization fills an important need in the community.  It is a true "hand up" and not hand out program that supports the successful transition out of homelessness and dependence.  There is a great need for regular household items when previously homeless community members move into housing.  Project Blessing fills this gap and provides needed items that facilitate the transition enabling people to work, provide for their families, and become self-reliant.

There will be a 3 vs. 3 tournament, and you are invited to come help set a new Guiness Book World Record for the largest game of Knockout ever.

You do not need to be on a team to participate, you do not need to be a basketball player to participate, you don't even need to know the rules of Knockout.  You only need to want to help raise  awareness of the plight of the Homeless as they find places to live.   

They are looking for as many commitments as possible.  If you or a group are willing to commit please email Name/Group and number of participants  Participants are encouraged to bring a donated household item from the list below, however, it is not required.
