2nd Annual Hoopin' With Santa

2nd Annual Hoopin' With Santa

December 31, 2020

This December marked the 2nd annual Hoopin' with Santa event at UPB in partnership with The Boys and Girls Club of The Peninsula (BGCP) and The Big Homie Project. BGCP works to combat the opportunity gap that plagues low-income communities through educational programming, and The Big Homie Project pairs youth of color with motivational mentors so they achieve their own personal and professional dreams. Together, with UPB, a basketball training facility and team, that work endlessly to help athletes of all ages reach their full potential, it only seemed right for the three organizations to partner together once again in what has been a very difficult year. 

UPB participated in BGCP's usual meal distribution program, that has stretched since before the pandemic, and provided 2,500 meals for families. At the meal distribution, UPB was able to also give out the gifts donated to the community. Together $7,000 was raised for the most affected families and children in the Bay Area, and toys were donated via an Amazon gift registry.

“Obviously, the process of being drafted was incredible and indescribable,” Williams said. “Now, playing with such a young team, we all get along so well. It's made the transition really easy. Just because we're all able to learn together. So it's been fun, just trying to embrace every part of it.”
