Three Ways East Bay United Is Making A Difference
Through the Deputy Sheriffs Activities League of Alameda County, East Bay United has launched a basketball program to serve the children in the East Oakland and San Lorenzo areas. Many of these children have never participated in an organized sports program before. Some have weight and body image issues, but every player knows he or she is a valued member of their team, and every player is getting better as students, as players and as individuals. The program has recently been expanded to include middle school students in the San Lorenzo area. More to come soon!
