MOUNT VERNON— On Tuesday, Aug. 27, the Brewton-Parker College men’s basketball team visited the Boys and Girls Club of Toombs County to give out brand new basketballs to teenagers to use during their time in the gym.

The players handed out the basketballs, a few shots were taken, high-fives given, all followed by a group picture. The basketballs, with the Brewton-Parker Baron logo on them, stay in the gym and are used by each class and child that uses the facility.

According to Assistant Men’s Basketball Coach Gavin Chapman, “The Boys and Girls Club serves youth from the local area with various programs offered after school and during the summer. For many kids, the instruction, support, and guidance from the club are imperative to their success growing up. They always enjoy the games and activities each day, but without question the most popular spot at the club is the gymnasium. From youngest to oldest, they can shoot basketball all day if allowed. The teenage group knew that the team was coming because there was a large “Thank You” poster, made by the teenagers, awaiting the team as they walked in.”

The Brewton-Parker men’s basketball team looks forward to continuing its relationship with the Boys and Girls Club of Toombs County and serving the youth in our local area.
