Help Bring HLL to a Third Public School in Harlem!

From April 17-May 23, HLL is participating in the Dick's Sporting Goods Foundation Sports Matter Program, a crowdfunding initiative to support youth sports. If we raise $17,500, Dick's will provide matching funds to create an HLL program at a third public school in Harlem. 

There are two ways you can help:

  • Donate by visiting the Harlem 76ers team page--any amount gets us closer!
  • Share the campaign via email, Facebook, Twitter or other social media. 

All donations made to the campaign are fully tax-deductible.
