South Loudoun Basketball is not only committed to providing an awesome youth basketball experience, we also strive to make an impact in our community. Here are some of the initiatives that SoLo is working to give back to the community:
Dulles South Food Pantry. We hold an annual food drive at our pre-season evaluations to help re-stock the pantry for the upcoming holiday season. We ask families to bring a food donation and drop it off in one of the bins at the evaluation site. The Dulles South Food Pantry (DSFP) is a multi-faith emergency food pantry located in Dulles, VA and a tax-exempt nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. The pantry provides nutritious food, personal supplies and other services to those in need in Dulles South and the surrounding area regardless of income, faith or other criteria and strives to promote self-sufficiency. New Pantry Guests may schedule an appointment by calling 703-507-2795 or emailing [email protected]. Information on volunteering at the pantry, or cash donations can be made by visiting their website at www.dsfp.org
Loudoun Sports Angels. SoLo has teamed with Loudoun Sports Angels, a local non profit based in Leesburg, to help increase sports participation for those children in need with in Loudoun County. The Sports Angels, or LSA are a startup organization of community members and sports leagues dedicated to providing county residents the resources to participate in youth sports no matter the family's financial situation. SoLo recognizes the rising costs of youth sports at every competition level, every age, and every sport. SoLo's new partnership with LSA will allow members of our community who may not be able to afford the costs basketball registration (both house and travel) to apply and receive the necessary funds to allow the child every opportunity to play. SoLo is excited to be the first major youth organization to team partnering with LSA. SoLoare proud to be a part of a group to help the children of our community participate in youth sports where they otherwise might not be able to. SOLO will make an initial contribution to LSA and continue to build the relationship with the group. Individuals can contribute to the cause by visiting https://loudounangels.org/fundraisers/
