Is your child a tennis player?
We know many families are looking for a meaningful Mitzvah Project and we thought this organization might be of interest to our readers.
Tennis Racquets for Kids is a non-profit organization founded in 2008 by twins Paige and Zachary Mintz who live on Long Island. They are dedicated to giving underprivileged children a chance to experience the game of tennis.
Used racquets are collected and donated to various programs, schools or individuals in need. The organization has also conducted free instructional clinics for the children.
They have a special Mitzvah Project and volunteer opportunities for children 11-13. Mitzvah students can collect used racquets or purchase new ones from their monetary gifts.
These racquets have generated smiles and hugs from children of all ages. Racquets can be collected by the individual thru a drive at his/her synagogue, school, camp, or tennis center. Collection receptacles can be set up.
Tennis Racquets for Kids can provide flyers to help you spread the word. Each Mitzvah child will receive a Tennis Racquets for Kids T-shirt to wear on the day of a sponsored event.
