Hoops 4 Hope building community through sports


United We Ball, a non profit leadership organization that looks for ways to improve the Quad Cities area through sports and community projects, and the East Moline Police Department would like to invite families from the community to the Hoops 4 Hope event that will take place on August 8 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Hereford Park located at 400 13th St., East Moline, IL.

Hoops 4 Hope had its first event last year and it was successful.

“Last year this event was created to unify the community at a time where that was incredibly important. Kannon Burrage saw a way to help and Captain Reagan helped make it happen. After such a successful and impactful event, we decided to use the momentum from that event to do something positive in the community,” Patricia Hansen from the East Moline Main Street Association, explained.


Hansen added that the East Moline Main Street was very involved with the planning of this family friendly event. And thanks to this careful planning, a lot will be going on during Hoops 4 Hope. Everyone planning to attend can expect bounce houses, giveaway bikes, sign up for free toy giveaway, free food, and of course the basketball games all throughout the night. Also, community members will have a chance to play basketball with members of the police force from the East Moline Police Department.

“Hoops 4 Hope is for the families in the community. We are trying to create a safe, positive space for kids to hang out,” Hansen explained through email message.

Hoops 4 Hope brings families from the community together through sports. Mark your calendars and bring your whole family to enjoy an evening of fun and games.
