The objective of this project, is to purchase spirit packs for the Hillcrest High School Varsity Girls Basketball Team in Evergreen AL. They are in need of complete basketball uniform sets for each of its players for the upcoming season. This includes the uniforms, warm-ups, shoes, socks and backpacks. The Varsity Girls Basketball Team has a rich tradition of winning. In the last six years; they have a 91-38 record, 3 Area Championships, 1 Final Four Appearance, 1 Regional Championship, 1 Sweet Sixteen, 2 Elite 8’s, & 2 Sub-Regional wins. However, with all of the great accomplishments that have been made by the girls’ basketball team, due to Covid our budget does not allow for the purchase of new uniforms. With the success of our basketball program, our girls deserve new uniforms. Many of these players participate in multiple sports, therefore, sometimes causing a strain on the parents/guardians. In the past, although we have had numerous fundraisers, parents and coaches have still had to contribute money from their own pockets to help cover team expenses.
Hillcrest High School has a JV & Varsity volleyball team. They were in need of a new indoor volleyball net that was approved by the AHSA. The girls also needed jerseys, warmups, ball cart, & carrying bags for away games.
This project will assist students with academic continuation of class subjects and introduction to fall class preparation. Laptops, accessories and supplies was
purchased updating technology access for online use
Through the funding of this grant, Evergreen will start a downtown Winter Wonderland that will consist of decorated tiny houses in the downtown area. These tiny houses will be put on display for the entire Christmas season. Families will be allowed to enter and there will also be interactive toys to match the theme inside. These tiny houses will be used for years to come. Through the year, we hope to continue to add more and more tiny houses to create a true Winter Wonderland in the downtown of Evergreen.
