SLTB 5th Grade Team Adopts a Family for Christmas
South Lyon Travel Basketball 5th grade team has adopted a family for Christmas this year. The team had their wrapping party this past Monday December 16th. The gifts were dropped off to the family on Sunday December 22nd. In addition to the Christmas gifts the team also delivered some furniture that was also needed by the family. A few of the parents from this team have also offered and plan to go back to do some painting and fix the porch steps after the holidays. The team will also take the adopted family grocery shopping on Christmas Eve. Very proud of this team for going above and beyond just learning the fundamentals of basketball. This event is the true meaning of Christmas and a great opportunity for these boys and families to give back to the community. A special thanks to Cristin Cumberland and Heather Fox who have done an outstanding job organizing this event previous years events.
It is also noted that the mother of this family is having major car trouble and her car is beyond fixable. If anyone knows someone who is willing to donate or has a used reliable car for sale please contact Jon Russell at 248-939-0349..
