Rising Senior Hosts Hoops for Hunger Basketball Clinic
Congratulations to Pearce Landry '17, Adam Calhoun '18, Banks Handy '19, and Cason Pierce '20 for hosting a successful basketball clinic called Hoops for Hunger. Three years ago, Pearce came up with an idea to combine his love of basketball and desire to work with young children to positively impact the Greensboro community. His idea developed into free basketball clinics for kids with the only requirement that they bring canned goods to help fill the pantry for BackPack Beginnings.
These clinics have successfully raised thousands of pounds of canned goods to help our community. GDS Varsity Basketball players work with participants on the fundamentals of basketball and focus on encouraging all of the participants whether they are first time players, or making every shot. This event marked the 5th clinic with 27 children participating.
