9U Americans Donate $1000 to ASA Financial Aid Fund

6/28/2017

 

Now featured in the current edition of the Allen Image magazine!

We have an amazing sports family here at ASA. Our 9U Competitive Baseball team, Americans, just blew us away with their teamwork, generosity and the positive leadership from Coach Andy Whaley and his wife Dr. Jennifer Whaley.

 

This team went above and beyond in order to give back to the Allen sports community.

The team led a fundraising drive in partnership with Thrivent Financial to raise money for the ASA financial aid program. Our financial aid program provides players, who otherwise would not financially be able to register, a chance to participate in any of our sports. This program has helped thousands of players realize the joy of playing team sports.

 

Mr. Sean Scruggs, representative for Thrivent Financial, provided the Americans with a $250 Community Action Grant to kick-start their fundraiser. The boys then used the money to buy 500 chocolate bars to sell throughout the baseball season. They were able to raise $1000!! The boys came by today to present their donation to ASA. We are so proud of their hard work and for working as a team to give back to their community. Please join us in giving this group a huge round of applause. Their efforts will have a huge impact on future players but they are also learning lessons about charity and community from a great group of adults as well.
