FRAMINGHAM – Hoops and Homework is extremely pleased to announce the receipt of a $25,000 grant from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
This critical funding would not have been possible without the leadership and support of Senator Karen Spilka who fought to include our program in the State Budget. We are so appreciative of Senator Karen Spilka’s hard work, as well as the support of State Representatives Chris Walsh and Jack Lewis, and of course the Governor’s office.
This grant from the Commonwealth will be used to provide critical staffing, supplies and food to ensure that students have a safe, high quality, enriching program experience with oversight by trained and caring adults. This is a need based program and all funding supports direct service to children, including one healthy meal each day.
