JHS Girls Basketball Team Gives Back Through “Hoops for the Holidays”

The JHS Girls Basketball team recently held a “Hoops for the Holidays” fundraiser. The team asked local businesses for donations to purchase Christmas presents for Jamestown families. The girls shopped, wrapped the presents and delivered them to the families. A special thanks to Fessenden, Laumer and DeAngelo, Alliance Advisory Group and Mr. and Mrs. Bob and Dori Johnson for their donations.

“As a team and representatives of Jamestown, it’s not only important, but rewarding to be able to give back to the city that has provided us with all of the support and recognition we have received. It was a really special experience to come together and provide a happier holiday to the kids of another family from ours,” said JHS Basketball player Olivia Nugent.
