Typically the Buddy Fund supplies sports equipment to over 45 St. Louis organizations helping at-risk or at risk children … organizations including police athletic leagues, after school programs, boys & girls clubs, leagues and teams, community centers and charities for disadvantaged kids.
A location near at-risk kids, staff quality, close teamwork and the role of sports programs are important to us. Race and religious affiliation are never a consideration in our operations.
All major sports are supported throughout the year. We focus on providing new, high quality and safe equipment as is appropriate for the age groups involved; we work with our partner organizations to encourage proper storage, control and maintenance of equipment, thereby extending its useful life and getting the most from our investments.
Do organized sports play a significant role in your program to support needy children? Is your organization located is a financially challenged neighborhood? Perhaps we can help you...call.
