After a generous donation from the VML Foundation we were able to order large quantities of brand new PE equipment to be donated to three schools: two in Harlem and one in the Bronx. Eight dozen balls, 160+ cones, dozens of jump ropes, flag football gear, floor spots, and basically any other PE gear you can imagine all randomly packed in boxes—mix and match, sort it out and get that gear organized.
Many schools in New York City not only lack adequate PE equipment, but they also lack storage space for the equipment they do have. Racks, boxes, and storage containers to the rescue! Our VML volunteers got out their tools and constructed storage solutions for each school.
The hard work is done, and now it’s time to enjoy the benefits. It is finally time to play! The three schools we partnered with were gracious enough to welcome us into their gyms for the donation unveil and to play a few games. The VML team was greeted by over 240 excited kids ready to dominate in a game of wizard ball! It's debatable who had more fun playing, the kids or the volunteers. We'll call it a tie for now!
