Members of the community will have an opportunity to participate in the HUB’s Tsunami Relief shoot-a-thon to raise Red Cross donations for medical aid, food, water and shelter. Participants will need to bring their own basketball and a donation for the Red Cross to be in the shoot-a-thon. Each participant will need to allow 20 minutes to complete shooting 50 jump shots. The goal is for each child or adult to request $20 from each person they ask to donate. Any amount of donation will be much appreciated.
