Help Our Hoops!!

Artesia’s Basketball Hoops are getting so much activity that they have worn out!

We need new basketballs and new hoops!!

Our dream is to eventually have hoops that are ceiling mount, some day!  But for now we’ll keep it simple and love to have backboards and bases that aren’t broken🙂

We are collecting Popcans – Pennies – and Donations of all kinds to help this project!!

If you can help in any way, please call us as soon as you can!
