The Court is Finished!

Last November, we set a goal to raise $32,000 on Give to the Max Day in order to create a new, safe play space for our Torre de San Miguel community in St. Paul, MN. The basketball and play court needed major work—in the past few years, between extreme weather and much love by the community, it has become cracked and uneven, and nets were missing from the decades-old hoops. We set out to raise enough to fix the court and make it a community asset everyone could play safely on and be proud of.

Because of the generosity of the many individuals who donated, we exceeded our goal and the rebuild of the play space was finished at the end of June! We are so excited to share this news with you. With social distance and safety protocols now in place, this new court provides Torre’s residents and community members with an outlet for fresh air and fun at a time when they are so badly needed.

We are so grateful for the generous individuals who supported this project for our Torre community. Click here for a video of what the court looked like before, and enjoy the below photos of the new-and-improved court!
