A New Pair of Basketball Shoes for Elijah who recently made the basketball team

Posted Jan 24, 2023
Elijah loves to play basketball and recently was picked to join a local recreation team. Elijah has grown several inches over the past year and has outgrown most of his shoes. He has been saving his allowance and doing extra chores to try and save enough money to purchase a pair of Jordan's. A new pair of Jordan's would really be a great gift.

Elijah is 17 years old and lives in VA

Elijah is a very smart and kind young man that was recently placed in a foster home without his two younger sisters. He loves to read and play video games and wants to one day create his own video game. Elijah has been a bit withdrawn since he was removed from home but he continues to be very respectful and does his chores with now complaints. He misses his two younger sisters but continues to be hopeful to be reunited with his family one day.
