The back to school season means pens, pencils, backpacks and even tennis balls as teachers ready their classrooms for a robust student body at Orchard Gardens School in Roxbury. A simple request for used tennis balls came from Colin Turner, one of their teachers, in hopes to make one of the classrooms more conducive to learning. FPTA was glad to help knowing that a few of our players lived in Orchard Park for part of their childhood.
Thank you so much FPTA for donating over 200 tennis balls to our 8th grade classroom! We now have a quieter, safer space to learn in, and the fact that the community donated them makes it all the more special! – Colin Turner
So, before you throw away those used tennis balls, consider donating them to a local school or a nursing home! If you have a bunch of balls, but no time to figure out where to donate them, call us at 617-427-8900 and make arrangements to drop them off to us and we will distribute.
