Coming Together for the Service Scorecard

The third month of the Service Scorecard has come and gone! Since the Service Scorecard launched in 2020, Hoop Shoot participants have shown love and support for their families, friends and communities through meaningful service projects. This holiday season, Hoop Shoot kids from across the country continue to embrace the month’s theme: Togetherness.

During December, Benaiah Tompkins gathered gloves, hats and coats to donate to local shelters in Michigan. Benaiah says that the most meaningful project to him was Boots for Kids because of their tireless work in providing free boots, gloves and hats to local youth.

In Idaho, Kent Bailey put time and effort into serving his community, including a special delivery to friends and family. “I liked taking Christmas treats to my friends and family,” Kent says. “It makes me feel good to do nice things for others.” In Illinois, Jackson Bleyle connected with a family member by spending quality time with his father.

In Kansas, Christian Wood found the most meaning in donating winter clothing to families, especially those with young children. He also spent time interviewing his grandparents about their favorite Christmas memories and traditions. Christian says, “I am so lucky to have winter clothes and shelter and my grandparents.”

In New York, Talya Becker made treats with her grandmother to gift to friends and family. “While we were baking, she told me stories about when her children, my mom and uncle, would bake every year,” Talya said. “She also told me stories of when she was little during the holidays.” Talya was the December Service Scorecard winner, and chose the St. Vincent De Paul, St. Francis Parish, in Tonawanda, NY to receive her $100 donation.

Hoop Shoot participants constantly display kindness and generosity with their enthusiasm to help others, showing us how the #HoopShootServes. Join them in doing your part by participating in service projects in your community during January. To kick off the New Year, the January Service Scorecard focuses on self-care.
