Community Youth Basketball

Post 9400 contributes to Sunnyslope Community Center.

Beginning this July 2014, 25 underprivileged children at the Sunnyslope Community Center will be able to participate in a summer Youth Basketball league thanks to a donation from the Joseph F. Monfort VFW Post 9400, in Sunnyslope, AZ.

VFW Post 9400 Basketball Donation

As part of Post 9400’s out-reach programs for our community youth, Post Commander Chris Kanios presented a check to Scott Williams, Recreation Programmer, along with Bill Talcott on the 19th of June for $550. This donation will make it possible for these 25 additional players to be added to the roster and helps the Center fill out their teams… allowing them to have a summer league, in which 120 Sunnyslope youth participate. Youth from ages 7 to 15 (in 4 age brackets) will have the chance to safely play a sport they love that otherwise they would not have been able to play.

The Sunnyslope Community Center should be lively this summer as teams practice on Thursdays and games begin in July on Saturdays. Come check it out!
