Hearts and Hoops – Rising Stars Basketball Players Team up with Charities


On December 18th, Rising Stars Youth Foundation, held its third annual “HEARTS AND HOOPS” community service program to help charities. We are very proud of the student-athletes from grades 4th to 8th who created 100 holiday cards for home-bound seniors through Meals on Wheels, wrote 100 letters for soldiers and first responders via Operation Gratitude, packed 100 “Blessing Packs” to be distributed by “The Homeless Bus” and decorated 100 rocks through the “Kindness Rocks Project. Players also made “Snowman Soup” hot cocoa packs for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House.

“Hearts and Hoops” promotes team-building spirit that will help our kids on the courts and make a positive difference in the world.
