#ProjectJumpRope + Covid-19 Testing
July 14, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Victory Sports is launching a partnership with Community Access Services (CAS) this coming Tuesday July 14th, to give away hundreds of jump-ropes, Project Play WNY Free-Play activity cards, face masks, hand sanitizer and other health & wellness items. Both organizations will be at 3297 Bailey Ave from 10am-12pm on Tuesday 7/14 to give the items away free of charge on a drive/walk-up basis. The giveaway is part of a 100-day Covid-19 testing initiative taking place on-site
The CAS and Evergreen Health site is in the heart of the 14215 ZIP code, one which has been particularly hard hit by the Covid-19 pandemic. Although the area and WNY as a whole has done very well at controlling the spread (reopening of the region and the restart of youth sports is testament to that), we have seen in other states that this virus has the capacity to rear its head again. Covid-19 testing is the best way to stay on top of the virus and control the spread.
Following our successful partnership with FeedMore WNY, Victory Sports is continuing to combine sport and physical activity with general health, wellness and food security by partnering with organizations such as CAS to distribute items into communities in need. #ProjectJumpRope was launched in May to provide 2000+ jump ropes to kids in greater Buffalo to try and keep them active and entertained during the lock down.

We’d like to thank the Ralph C. Wilson Jr, Foundation for their continued support of the work we do here at Victory Sports. You can always donate via the button below or this link. Every $20 helps us distribute 10 jump-ropes to kids in the community. Thanks for your support!
