Basketballs donated to local YMCA

HAGAMAN – The Amsterdam Family YMCA received a donation of 50 new basketballs.

The donation provides new basketballs for the Y’s winter Youth Basketball League, a news release said.

The basketballs were donated by NBA Cares, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Spalding, the release said.

“The Amsterdam Family YMCA is thrilled to have been selected to receive this generous donation from NBA Cares and its partners,” said Nancy Carr, executive director, in a news release. “Our basketballs see a lot of wear and tear through the year between our youth basketball league, 3-on-3 adult league and pick up games. We can now give them new balls to play with.”
