How 40 Backpacks Can Have an Impact! 

Kind words Chris Hooley shared about CAPS
 
- Me and Steven Lee checked out the backpacks donated to Rekindle by Shannon Oughton and Sidewinder Little League, and what we saw blew our minds. So many beautiful brand new high end backpacks absolutely stuffed with the best supplies we have ever seen. Each one is a custom backpack, with it's own story. Last night, I was overwhelmed with thankfulness and literally cried tears of joy. (I mean that in the manliest sense)
 
- People are so beautiful sometimes. And sometimes, I am proud to be a human. What amazing people. Absolutely amazing.
 
- Chris Hooley, You, your league, those kids and their parents should be very proud. You're awesome people. Not only will you be making a difference in 40 people's lives, you impacted me directly with this profound generosity. I didn't even realize how big it was until we started going through everything. These backpacks are amazing. You people are amazing. I am overwhelmed with thankfulness and hope because of you.

 

We are always in need of volunteers willing to donate their time to help our league grow.  If you are interested in volunteering or would like more information, please contact sidewinderlittleleague@gmail.com.  We would love to have your help!
